Information Management and Interdisciplinarity are two foundations of our modern society. The Iron Curtain fell in 1989 and as a consequence, academic institutions initialized cooperation between Austria and the Czech Republic. In 1992 an agreement on a cooperation between the University of Economic Prague (VSE) and the Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU) was agreed upon.
In 2020 we held the 28th Interdisciplinary Information Management Talks (IDIMT) , a name which the Czech Co-Chairman Petr Doucek coined in 1994. And it became a yearly event of growing size. In 2020, despite the Corona virus we had 100 participants, 43 submitted papers, 11 invited papers and proceedings of 500 pages.
