ICIC 2015 - The Meeting

ICIC is the International Conference on Trends for Scientific Information Professionals.

27th ICIC International Conference for the Information Community

For those in the sci-tech world, sharing best practices, networking and evaluating trends have become matters of considerable importance, and the annual ICIC Meeting & Exhibition is the significant forum for this, attracting over 160 attendees from the main sci-tech companies and information, service and software providers.

Started in 1989 ... 

These exciting and highly respected annual conferences, that started in Montreux in 1989 and subsequently were held in Annecy, Nîmes, Barcelona, Nice, Vienna, Berlin and Heidelberg have always been a proven barometer as to the strengths and frailties of the world of sci-tech and patent information.

The conference lasts for two days and features approximately 20 formal presentations, panels on topical matters, all interspersed with short new product information presentations. All sessions are plenary. The conference begins with a reception on the first evening to enable attendees to begin networking with each other. Lunches are provided at the conference venue, and breaks are designed to facilitate networking and interaction. A focused exhibition of approximately 18 stands is integrated within the conference. Attendance at these meetings is highly international, with no one nationality predominating.

The 2015 ICIC conference is organised by Dr Haxel Congress and Event Management.

Subject Areas for the 2015 Programme 

The traditional focus of the ICIC programmes is subjects of interest to information professionals in a scientific or technical environment. As in previous years, this year's programme contains a number of presentations examining aspects of patent information retrieval, including drug discovery; patent information presents many challenges and is thus an excellent test-bed when it comes to information technology. The ICIC meeting's roots in chemical information also ensure that area features prominently; chemical information was one of the first fields to attract modern information technologies back at the end of the twentieth century and the very beginning of the twentyfirst. 

Next ICIC:  19 - 20 October 2015, Nice, France.

AI-SDV is coming soon / Important update of the Corona situation in Nice

I am very sorry, but currently there are no good news from Nice: The southern city of Nice has banned public gatherings of more than 10 people and has restricted bar opening hours as France’s public health agency reported a record daily spike in infections and warned that deaths from Covid-19 are rising again for the first time since the nationwide lockdown had been lifted.

On Friday, 18th September, France registered 13,215 new infections 

The final decision whether we will host the hybrid meeting from Nice or from my office in Germany will be made on Thursday 1st October.

I encourage all our Exhibitors to invite all attendees to a seperate zoom, webex, google meet session during the coffee and lunch breaks for a break out sessions via the chat function in zoom. The Exhibitors are invited to use the chat function during the zoom session. I will promote this after every product presentation.

We still have 30 seats: Every registered Attendee may invite an additional virtual attendee free of charge. Our goal is that we will have about 100 attendees by 5th of October – 50 % more attendees than last year!
