15 - 17 June 2009, Jena, Germany


The beginning

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.

The 9th I²CS in Jena/Germany

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. But there is one more new aspect: it will jointly be organized by two partners, the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories Berlin. This will strengthen the close corporation between education, research and industries.
