20 th ICIN Conference Innovations in Clouds, Internet and Networks

Since 1989 the ICIN conferences have been bringing together leading internet and telecom experts from industry, universities and government worldwide. ICIN operates on a rigorous peer review process and has an enviable track record of identifying key technology and service trends – and analysing their impact on business models – before they become widely recognised.

ICIN conferences cover both technology and business issues. They typically feature one day of tutorials followed by a three day programme in which delegates can select state-of-the-art presentations by worldwide leading industry experts. ICIN is well-known for thought-provoking presentations of the highest quality on emerging technology, architecture, and industry trends impacting intelligent communications services.

The ICIN Community

ICIN provides a unique impartial environment for open and honest technical dialogue in the area of intelligent communications services. This is acknowledged by the many professional engineering and scientific societies worldwide that have supported ICIN over the years. The conferences are both intimate and global, typically attracting 150 delegates from operators, equipment and software vendors, systems integrators, R&D centres and universities, from more than 30 countries.

The ICIN community brings together experts from all sectors of the ICT industry to share knowledge, experience, lessons learnt and good practice. The community not only includes many influential thinkers but is also well known for its willingness to explore new ideas and business models.
