Norwegian Computing Centre

Norwegian Computing Centre (NCC, in Norwegian: Norsk Regnesentral or NR for short) is a private, independent, non-profit[?] research foundation dating its history back to 1952. NR carries out contract research and development in the areas of computing and quantitative methods[?] for a broad range of industrial, commercial and public service organisations in the national as well as the international market.

The Simula programming language was designed and built by Professor emeritus [?] Ole-Johan Dahl and Professor emeritus[?] Kristen Nygaard at the Norwegian Computing Centre (NCC) in Oslo between 1962 and 1967.

Both received the ACM Turing Award in 2001 and the 2002 IEEE John von Neumann Medal for the introduction of the concepts underlying object-oriented programming through the design and implementation of Simula 67.
