    What is IFIP?

    • International Federation for Information Processing

    • IFIP is a non-governmental, non-profit umbrella organization for national societies working in the field of information processing.

    • It was established in 1960 under the auspices of UNESCO as an aftermath of the first World Computer Congress held in Paris in 1959.

    • Today, IFIP has several types of members and maintains friendly connections to specialized agencies of the UN system and non-governmental organizations.

    • Technical work, which is the heart of IFIP's activity, is managed by a series of Technical Committees.
