  • A 50 yen postage stamp has been issued on September 29, 1980, to commemorate the International Federation for Information Processing Congress 80 and the World Conference on Medical Informatics 80.
  • The 8th IFIP Congress 80, sponsored jointly by the IFIP, the Data Processing Association and the Australian Computer Association, will be held in Tokyo on October 6-9 with about 3,000 participants from 60 nations. The coming Congress will cover a wide range of subjects such as basic theories, hardware, software, information systems, education and computer communications; the Congress is intended to provide an occasion for an international exchange of knowledge relating to the techniques of information science and to establish an international framework for the new academic field of data processing.
  • The MEDINFO, operating independently of the IFIP since the 6th Congress held in 1974 in Sweden, constitutes the Fourth Technical Committee of the IFIP. Accordingly, both Congresses have been held at the same time in close contact with each other. The period from September 29 to October 4 has been allocated for the Congress.
