In October 2002 the Academic Senate of the University of Salzburg decided to establish a new center to carry out research in the field of new information and communication technologies and society. On 18th of March 2004 the construction work of our location was done and the ICT&S team moved into the new location in the Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse. Two weeks later the ICT&S strategic focus of the University was presented.
These major points in our development show the dynamic processes throughout the last years in the ICT&S Center and its engagement in various activities related to information and communication technologies and society. By taking part in national and international conferences, by consequently working on its targets and visions, by creating partnerships throughout the world and by the establishment of the actual ICT&S team the present status of work could be reached.
