In the month of October 1969, thanks to the efforts of the American scientist Carl Moser, the Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire (CECAM) was established in Paris, with a clear mission: «CECAM’s purpose in the scientific world is to concentrate on problem areas on which only numerical solutions exist and for which larger and larger scale computing power becomes necessary for progress» .
