ISI is divided into ten "divisions", each of which contains research groups focused on a particular aspect of information science:
Division 1: Computational Sciences
Division 2: Distributed Scalable Systems
Division 3: Intelligent Systems
Division 4: Silicon Systems / MOSIS
Division 5: Business Office
Contracts and Grants administration. Human Resources functions.
Division 6: Action
Division 7: Computer Networks
Conducts research into all forms of computer networking including networking protocols, distributed networking, embedded networking, sensor networks, and middleware. The division has built or collaborated on building several key elements of modern networks that are in wide use throughout today's Internet, including: TCP/IP, DNS, SMTP, and IPv6.
Division 7 was at one time directed by Jon Postel.
