Abstract

The conception of a new generation of computer systems was developed by a team of scientists from USSR Academy of Sciences, academies of USSR republics, academies of COMECON countries in 1984-85. The conception contained main directions of computing technology and informatics development in the socialist countries. Additionally, it prescribed the main directions of research and development that should be performed to obtain new qualities of information and computer systems. The conception was supposed to be implemented within the framework of ten integrated scientific projects performed by the international research teams. The structure of these projects and the main results of their implementation are presented. A glance on these projects from today positions is also presented.
