Activities in acquisitions and dispatches during 2000

Graphs describing the evolution over the years of the Computer Program service concerning new acqusitions / revisions of computer codes and integral experiments data, the profile of users for 2000 as well as dispatch by area of interest are shown here.

You will note that the number of integral experiments benchmark data has decreased compared to 1999. The major reason is that one of the databases has not undergone updates in 2000 and requests for it were therefore much smaller than in the previous year. The request for Computer Program packages increased over the previous year. Customers profile has not changed much from the previous year. Half of the requests come from the national or governmental funded laboratories, one quarter from academia and one quarter from industry and engineering companies.
