ICIC 2009 - The Meeting
The International Conference on Trends for Scientific Information Professionals.
18 - 21 Oct 2009, Sitges
There were around 170 participants, a similar number to 2008, and exclusively this year from European Countries and North America. Countries with the most delegates were UK, Germany, and France (each with 16-18%), and USA, Austria, and the Netherland. Around half the delegates were the first time attendees.
Among the varied themes of the ICIC 2009, there was a strong focus on state-of-the-art tools for extracting information and analysis, mining, mapping and visualisation from scientific and technical information.
