 CRAY RESEARCH EXECUTIVE ELECTED TO HEAD IBERO-AMERICAN
 SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY CONSORTIUM
 EAGAN, Minn., January 16, 1992 -- Carlos Marino, senior director of Cray Research's (NYSE: CYR) Industry, Science & Technology Group, has been elected chairman and president of the Ibero-American Science and Technology Education Consortium (ISTEC).
 Marino was elected to the position during a general assembly November meeting, when the consortium met in Campinas, Brazil. He began his membership with the consortium when it organized in 1990.
 ISTEC is a non-profit consortium established to foster science and engineering education and technology transfer among universities and industries within the Ibero-American countries. Member countries include all Latin-American countries, Spain, Portugal, the United States and Canada.
 As chairman and president of ISTEC's executive committee, Marino will be responsible for establishing and implementing policies and overseeing the development of science and technology programs.
 "Latin-America is in the process of redefining its role in the new world order," Marino said. "ISTEC's goal is to assist the region in playing an active role in the international marketplace by establishing cooperative educational research and technology transfer programs among Latin-American institutes and private industry with their counterparts in North America and Europe."
 In partnership with industry affiliates like Cray Research, Motorola and Northern Telecom, ISTEC hopes to help Ibero-American countries access state-of-the art technology, enhance and update curricula programs in the sciences and engineering, upgrade computational and telecommunications installations, organize new laboratories for research and development, foster joint international R&D projects, and facilitate the exchange of personnel.
 A major initiative currently sponsored by ISTEC is the creation of a supercomputing network linking major Latin American universities and research centers with supercomputing centers in the United States. The establishment of cooperative R&D projects and technology transfer programs are expected as result of this communications network.
 Representatives from Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Peru, Mexico and Spain sit on ISTEC's executive committee, as well as two representatives from the United States.
 Cray Research, Inc. creates the most powerful and highest quality computational tools for solving the world's most challenging scientific and industrial problems.
