The theme of the CSI 2017 is “Social Transformation – Digital Way”. CSI is the largest and oldest organization of computer and IT professionals, academicians and users in India. There are more than 100,000 members in 73 chapters and 500 Student Branches spreading across the country. CSI was founded in the year 1965 at Hyderabad and, initially, two Chapters were formed – one in Bombay and the other in Calcutta. Over these years, the Society has taken and implemented many pioneering initiatives in promoting Information Technology, computer education and research throughout the country.

Every year the CSI Annual convention is held in one of the big cities in India. Till date, eight Annual Conventions of CSI have been organized and hosted by CSI Kolkata Chapter in Kolkata; out of those the first Annual Convention was held at ISI, Calcutta during 15-17 December, 1966. The Silver Jubilee Convention, the best ever in the history of CSI, was also held in Kolkata in 1990.CSI-2017 will be the ninth such convention to be organized and hosted by CSI Kolkata Chapter.

Each Annual Convention in Kolkata is preceded by a Tutorial, popularly known as ‘Pre-Convention Tutorial’ which is organized mainly for the young learners of the upcoming subjects woven around science and technology. Besides, the convention will comprise plenary sessions, invited lectures by eminent speakers of national and international repute; panel discussions and session papers. In addition, attempts are being made to organize CIO/CTO Summit during the Convention. On earlier occasions, Conventions were attended by thousands of IT professionals and users to interact and discuss with the leaders in the IT world to identify the growth areas. The Exhibitions in the convention will bring together Computer manufacturers, Software/Internet companies, ISPs, telecommunication majors, training institutes, multimedia solutions providers among others.

The success of a programme of this magnitude depends on active cooperation and financial support from the corporate houses without which it will be difficult to fulfill our goals and objective.
