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).

- 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)

CAVTAT near DUBROVNIK
|| The second conference was organized in 1980, i.e
6 years after the first one, in a small Adriatic town of Cavtat
From 1980-1991, with the exception of 1984,
Cavtat was our charming host.
While in Cavtat, the conference used to take place in "Croatia"
hotel, one of probably the most beautiful hotels on the
Adriatic coast. We are happy that ITI has returned to Cavtat
Cavtat, ancient Greek Epidaurum, is a small town 18 km away from
Dubrovnik, and only 6 km away from Dubrovnik International Airport.
With its rich and interesting past and natural beauty, full of sun
and mediterranean vegetation, and with unique golden sunsets, this
town can be easily compared to Dubrovnik. It is also a famous tourist
centre. In the area of Cavtat are the remains originating from various
cultures, and the city itself has been several times raised anew
from its ruins. In 15th century it became a part of the Republic
of Dubrovnik. On nearby Rat, long ago was a Greek acropolis. Cultural
inheritance is kept in Rector's Palace, the Baroque church of St.
Nikola, Bogisic's scientific collection, Vlaho Bukovac Art Gallery,
Racic Mausoleum designed by the famous Croatian sculptor Mestrovic,
Sipun cave etc.
According to legends and chronicles, refugees from Epidaurum (today's
Cavtat), escaping from invasion of Avars and Slavs, established
|| In 1984, the conference was held in "Libertas"
hotel in Dubrovnik.
The city of Dubrovnik, cut in stone below the hill of Srdj,
washed by the sea and surrounded by colorful mediterranean gardens
has always been the symbol of the pure beauty of nature combined
with human creativity, love of freedom and sense of modesty.
Once a powerful tiny state, the beauty of which has always been
the challenge and inspiration of artists as well as destination
of numerous native and foreign visitors, a Gothic - Renaissance

|| "Histria" hotel, Pula|
From 1992 - 2001, for 10 successful, memorable years, the conference
was held in "Histria" hotel in 3000 years old, festive city
of Pula, (Istria).
|| Welcome to Pula,
the eternally youthful mediterranean town!
Above the cape of Kamenjak Jason and Medea founded the town of
Polai - the spring of life, the town of fugitives. Thereafter
the Romans constructed it as per their own taste and necessity.
Republic of Polensium with Augustus become the divine town, "pleasure
of the rich, happiness of the middle class". These are bearing witness:
In the town that has existed for three millennia, the old world is
connected with the new. A great number of preserved monuments from
all epochs had inspired many artists, writers and composers (Dante
Alighieri, Thomas Mann, James Joyce, Franz Lehar) as well as many
The area of Pula is magnificent, with country stone houses, buildings
of modern architecture, quiet hacklberry shade and the view to the
culture of mankind. In nowadays during the summer, Pula has twice
as much of inhabitants as it has usually. Along the 190 km of beautiful
and very abounding natural harbours, in hotels, camps and private
accommodation reside more than 50 thousand tourists. With Trieste
and Rijeka, Pula, situated at the very south of Istria,
forms a triangle of attractive towns. Therefore Pula cannot be avoided.
We are thankful for the beautiful times we had on our Istrian
excursions, and for all the hospitality we enjoyed during the
10 Conference years in Pula! Top of page,
