Founded in 2001 as "Innovative Internet Computing Systems" in Ilmenau by Thomas Böhme and Herwig Unger, the I²CS takes place regularly every year in the third week of June.
On the international way
The first conference outside of Germany took place in Mexico in 2004. Again, it was Herwig Unger, who made this important step possible. The change in the name from "computing" to "community" reflects perfect its understanding as a workshop of exchange between people from different countries, from universities, research institutes and industries.
Via France and Switzerland it returned to Germany. From now on, alternately an international and a German location is selected by the steering committee to arrange the three-days event which has reached the status of an international conference.
From the Antilles the I²CS will come back over 7500 km to its origin, Thuringia, the green heart of Germany. For the first time by "Tradition meets innovation" the I²CS is given a special motto.
The tenth I²CS has held for the first time in Asia, in Bangkok, Thailand. Up to now, it is the most far away from Germany, "Research drives Innovation" was the motto of the 11th I²CS which held in Berlin/Germany.
From Germany, once again abroad, in 2012, I²CS was has held in Norway with the special motto "Future Requires Interdisciplinary". In 2013, I²CS returned to Hagen in Germany.
