National Information and Communications Technology Australia (NICTA) is the largest ICT research center in Australia, having been established 10 years ago in 2002. It has five laboratories in four Australian capital cities: Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, and Brisbane. There are currently around 700 staff and Ph.D. students working at NICTA. In June 2009, the 100th Ph.D. student to study at NICTA graduated. At present and averaged over the year, one new Ph.D. student studying at NICTA graduates every 10 days. NICTA has close links with its university members (Australian National University, the University of New South Wales, and the University of Melbourne) as well as with its partner universities (University of Sydney, Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology, University of Queensland, and most recently Monash University). Many of the researchers at NICTA are seconded from these universities. In addition, most of the other researchers at NICTA hold adjunct positions at one of these universities, enabling them to teach courses and supervise Ph.D. students. NICTA also has close links with a number of other research organizations (including Australia's CSIRO, France's INRIA, Japan's NII, and Germany's Fraunhofer Institute) and major companies (including Microsoft, Google, SAP, and Ericsson).
