The Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education (ITiCSE) has been held annually since 1996. Formed as the second conference sponsored by the Special Interest Group for Computing Education (SIGCSE), ITiCSE has been held in or around Europe for most of its history. After an experimental conference in South America in 2016 that ultimately resulted in the creation of the ACM Global Computing Education Conference, the SIGCSE Board committed to holding ITiCSE in Europe indefinitely. SIGCSE partnered with the ACM Europe Council (ACM-EC) and Informatics Europe (IE) in 2018 to raise the conference profile in the European informatics education community, agreeing to form a joint steering committee for the conference. Much more about ITiCSE governance is found on the governance page.

During its history, ITiCSE has had an impact both within and beyond Europe. Working groups and conference-sponsored excursions were developed at ITiCSE, and their popularity has resulted in other SIGCSE conferences adopting similar events. The desire to host a conference like ITiCSE in other locations around the globe inspired the creation of the fourth SIGCSE conference, the ACM Global Computing Education Conference.

Since 2019, a doctoral consortium (DC) has been offered at the conference. Originally a pilot supported by the Scottish Informatics & Computer Science Alliance, the DC proved popular in the community. In 2021, the SIGCSE Board approved the indefinite co-location of a DC at ITiCSE, with support provided jointly by SIGCSE and ACM-E. While the DC was held virtually in 2020 and 2021 due to the global pandemic, the DC returns in person in 2022.
