Since 1989, the ICIN conferences have been bringing together leading Internet and telecom experts from industry, academia and government from across the globe. ICIN is a single track conference that is both intimate and global, attracting 100+ delegates, from more than 20 countries. It focuses on leading edge investigations into Internet technologies, from basic networking and cloud services to novel architectures. ICIN uses a rigorous peer-review process and has become an established industry forum to discuss emerging trends in Information and Communications Technology (ICT). It offers an agora for one-on-one discussions and cross- fertilization between participants and leading network visionaries, with the goal of promoting dialogue and ideation about the current and future trends in networking research and development.
