Zhongguancun has long existed since 1950's and only became a household name in the early 1980s. The first person who envisioned the future for Zhongguancun was Chen Chunxian, a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), who came up with the idea for a Silicon Valley in China after he visited the U.S. as part of a government-sponsored trip. The location of the Chinese Academy of Sciences within Zhongguancun reinforced, and perhaps was in part responsible for the technological growth in this area. Notable companies The most famous companies that grew up in Zhongguancun are Stone Group, Founder Group, and Lenovo Group. They were all founded in 1984-85. Stone was the first successful technology company to be operated by individuals outside the government in China. Founder is a technology company that spun off Peking University. Lenovo Group spun off from Chinese Academy of Sciences with Liu Chuanzhi, a hero of Zhongguancun and current Chairmain, eventually taking the helm. Lenovo purchased IBM's PC division with $1.75 billion in 2005, making it the world's third-largest PC maker. Both Founder and Lenovo Group maintain strong connections to their academic backers, who are significant shareholders. History The forum was started in 1997 as bbs.mit.edu at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, hence the "MIT" in its name. However, its history can be traced to two earlier forums: the Unknown BBS at Peking University, China from 1996-1997, followed by the Space BBS at Center for Space Science at Chinese Academy of Sciences. Unlike the two precursors which were located in China, the MIT forum is much less affected by Internet censorship in mainland China, and grew in popularity among Chinese students studying abroad. - ''Acta Botanica Yunnanica'' journal home Chinese Academy of Sciences 1979–present Chinese (Chinese language) 6 issues per year - - ''Journal of Integrative Plant Biology'' journal home Blackwell Publishing, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Botanical Society of China 2005–present English (English (language)) 12 issues per year - soldby designfirm Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Jiangsu Lemote Tech Co., Ltd (Lemote) manuf1 STMicroelectronics '''Loongson''' (academic name: '''Godson''') 龍芯處理器英文品牌定名Loongson is a family of general-purpose MIPS64 (MIPS architecture) CPU (central processing unit)s developed at the ''Institute of Computing Technology'' (ICT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in the People's Republic of China.
