The seed for the Computer Society of India (CSI) was first sown in the year 1965 with a handful of IT enthusiasts who were a computer user group and felt the need to organize their activities. They also wanted to share their knowledge and exchange ideas on what they felt was a fast emerging sector. Today the purposes of the Society are scientific and educational directed towards the advancement of the theory and practice of computer science & IT. CSI is celebrating its Golden Jubilee in 2015.

About CSI Trivandrum
The activities of the Computer Society of India started in the city of Trivandrum with the annual convention of Computer Society of India CSI 69 in January 1969 on the theme topic 'Training in Software'.

Sri.SR.Thakore of PRL, Ahmedabad also was instrumental in hosting this event at Trivandrum. The CSI 69 was the pace setter of computer activities in a coordinated manner in Trivandrum. The computer enthusiasts in the city and other parts of Kerala started efforts to have a chapter of the Computer Society of India based at Trivandrum to foster their interests and to propagate the objectives of CSI. With a membership of over forty, thus the 11th chapter of CSI came into being with Dr.D.S.Rane, then Head of the Computer Division in 1976. Mr.K.Thanappan Nair of the Government Data Processing Centre was the founder Secretary of the Chapter. The Chapter was officially inaugurated on 25th June 1976 by Sri.F.C.Kohli, the President of CSI.

With the financial assistance from CSI Headquarters, the Trivandrum Chapter could acquire office premises consisting of an office room and a lecture hall located in the heart of the city.
