CZEMERINSKI*, Hernán  and  JACOVKIS, Pablo M.. La llegada de la computación a la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Rev. iberoam. cienc. tecnol. soc. [online]. 2011, vol.6, n.18, pp. 75-87. ISSN 1850-0013.

Clementina was the first computer for scientific and academic purposes to arrive in Argentna. It arrived to the country in late 1960s and was installed in the Building 1 of the campus (Ciudad Universitaria) of the University of Buenos Aires. This study analyzes the historical context in which it made its arrival both at national and university levels. It also reviews the experience of its installation, the organization that involved its use, the work done with it and the sad denouement it suffered after the 1966 coup-d'état.

Keywords : Scientific computing; Argentinean history; Clementina.
