Period 1974 - 1990
- The first Conference was organized in 1974 in the capital of Croatia, Zagreb, under the name "Computer at the University".
- Since 1980 the Conference was held annualy in the little town of Cavtat near Dubrovnik.
- Conference was sponsored by ETAN Association, and was held under the auspices of JAZU-Yugoslav Academy of Sciences and Arts (nowdays HAZU-Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts).
- Croatian and English were the official languages and simultaneous translations were provided during the presentations.
- Members of the International Program Committee moderated the scope of the Conference and took care of reviewing the papers.
- During this period the Conference kept its international character owing to foreign co-sponsors and co-operating institutions, program committee members, referees and contributors.
Period 1991 - now
- This period started with many changes:
- In 1991 a general referendum was held in Croatia, with more than three quarters of voters opting for Croatian independence from Yugoslavia. The Republic of Croatia was established as an independent country and was recognized as such worldwide.
- As a consequence, in 1991 the Yugoslav army started a war against Croatia and occupied a part of Croatia, including Cavtat. To keep the Conference going on it was decided to move the Conference site from Cavtat to Pula starting with year 1992.
- In 1991 the Conference also changed its name to Information Technology Interfaces ITI .
- In 1991, the International Association IMACS accepted sponsorship of the Conference, in addition to the auspices of HAZU-Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, and MZTI-Ministry of Science, Technology and Informatics.
- In 1991 English was declared as the only official Conference language in order to make the reviewing process completely international.
- In 1991 SRCE-University Computing Centre gained access to EARN/BITNET as well as other networks, and started using them for communication with participants and referees. For the first time an electronic version of the ITI '91 Call for Papers was distributed worldwide.
- Since 1992 the Conference Proceedings is abstracted in INSPEC database. Other databases and library services followed.
- During this period the Conference announcement has been published in many journals with information stored in several international conference databases.
- Computer at the University (1974 - 1990)
