The European Group for Intelligent Computing in Engineering (EG-ICE) was established in 1993 to promote research on the interface between computing and engineering challenges. The primary goals of the group are to promote engineering informatics research across Europe by encouraging and improving contacts between researchers, fostering research collaboration and enhancing awareness of the latest developments. The group maintains active contact with similar groups in countries outside Europe and encourages membership by non-Europeans. Moreover, the group has a further aim to increase the awareness of industry of advanced engineering informatics.

To achieve its aims, the group runs a yearly workshop and is active in the promotion, dissemination and exchange of ideas in order to provide effective links between research, industry and teaching. The EG-ICE 2024 conference is not restricted to engineers. Thus, computer scientists, architects, psychologists and other interested people are encouraged to participate.
