Institute Integriert Studieren

Welcome to the Institute Integriert Studieren

Our activities and area of responsiblities include:

  • Research in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT) and accessibility / disability and assistive technologies
  • Education for computer science students (Bachelor's and Master's programs) and holding elective courses for all JKU students in various research areas
  • Our Service & Support Center works closely with students living with disabilities, a chronic illnesses, or who are neurodiverse, collaborating with publishing companies, the JKU Rectorate, as well as JKU course instructors and institute/department heads at the JKU

In addition, we organize the bi-annual "International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs (ICCHP)" conference.

The ICCHP is Europe's largest, bi-annual scientific conference focusing on ICT / AT for those living with disabilities and requiring assistive technologies.

We are available for you as follows:

ICT (information and communication technologies) are becoming a central resource helping people affected by disabilities. ICT is the basis for a wide range of assistive technologies.

As ICT has advanced, individuals living with disabilities now have a central point to access and engage within an information society. In the meantime, the importance of creating a barrier-free information society is a recognized objective among our community.


The Institute Integriert Studieren

The institute emerged as a result of a trial program established in 1991, providing students in research and development with services focusing on information technologies for those affected by disabilities.

The Institute Integriert Studieren conducts research in the area of disability. Despite its initial focus on information technology, it has since expanded into other areas. Research today covers the areas of "eAccessibility", "Mathematics & Games" and "Social Integration".

Support Services for Students who have a Disability, a Chronic Illness, or are Neurodiverse

Thanks to the support of over 250 students at all of the JKU's faculties suffering from disabilities, a chronic illness, and those who are neurodiverse -  and in cooperation with five partner universities facing the same challenges of integrating students - we have successfully proven that it is not only indeed possible - and essential - to integrate students, it also forms the basis for a generally more attractive, pleasant, and appealing university environment.

Research and Development

The Institute Integriert Studieren has contributed significantly to establishing research fields such as Assistive Technologies, "Design for Everyone", and (e)Inclusion, as well as over 60 research activities and projects on a local, national, and international scale.

The "International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs, opens an external URL in a new window“ was launched in 1989 as a means of encouraging the networked research and development of assistive technologies to support those living with disabilities as well as an ageing population. The Institute for Integrated Studies has biannually organized and hosted this leading global conference since 2002.
