Short history

The ICT.OPEN conference was organised for the first time in 2011 and it acts as the successor of SIREN//NL and STW.ICT. Nowadays the conference is jointly organised by NWO Physical Sciences (NWO EW) and Technology Foundation STW under the auspices of ICT research Platform Netherlands (IPN). This conference is open to everyone who is interested in ICT research.

The organising committee and committee of tracks can be found here.


IPN, NWO Physical Sciences and STW are daily engaged in the promotion and selection of the best research in Computer Science. The ultimate ambition for ICT.OPEN is to be the annual conference for researchers and interested parties from industry engaged in or interested in ICT research. It is the ICT conference where participants share new and innovative knowledge, inspire each other and networking.


A place to be where science meet and where science can find industry and vice versa.
