Founded as an academic workshop in 2001 as I2CS (Innovative Internet Computing Systems) in Ilmenau by Thomas Böhme and Herwig Unger, the I2CS annually took place every year in the third week of June. In 2003, the University of Leipzig joined the consortium.
The first event 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" perfectly reflects its understanding as a workshop of exchange between people from different countries, universities, institutes, vendors, and industries.
Via France and Switzerland, it returned to Germany in 2007. From now on, an international and a German location is alternately selected by the steering committee to arrange the three-days event which has reached the status of an international conference.
In 2014, the name of the conference has been changed into I4CS (Innovations for Community Services) to emphasize the application focus.
