VICISU evolved out of the Vienna International Christian-Islamic Round Table, an initiative that was started by academics from several fields of specialisation, such as law, theology and social sciences.
VICISU started in 2008 and has since then been organised on a biannual basis. Professors and students came from countries including Afghanistan, Australia, Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Germany, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Lebanon, Malaysia, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States of America.
VICISU 2016 will again be organised at Stift Altenburg, a Benedictine monastery in Lower Austria. The baroque monastery, widely known for its "Garden of the Religions", combines a unique atmosphere with the conveniences of a modern conference hotel.
VICISU is accompanied by many extra-curricular activities like excursions to the world famous Abbey of Melk, a sightseeing and shopping trip to Vienna, receptions at the Cityhall of Vienna and at Stift Altenburg as well as many sporting activities
(football, table tennis, jogging, hiking, swimming) and a cultural evening.
