Information, communication and networks (ICICN) is a rapidly evolving field encompassing the study of various technologies for communication and data transmission. With the growing demand for high-speed, reliable, and secure communication systems, ICICN has become a significant area of research and development. Current research includes the development of new communication protocols, network architectures, routing and congestion control algorithms, and exploration of new technologies like 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT). Furthermore, the application of ICICN technologies in healthcare, transportation, and smart cities has garnered significant attention.

The 2023 IEEE 11th International Conference on Information, Communication and Networks (ICICN) is set to take place in Xi'an, Shaanxi, China during August 17-20, 2023. ICICN 2023 is sponsored by Northwestern Polytechnical University, South University of Science and Technology of China, Beijing University of Technology, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xidian University, and Nanchang Hangkong University, co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Photonics Society, IEEE China Council SEN SYSC Jt. Chapter, and IEEE Xi‘an Section BT Chapter, organized by the School of Automation at Northwestern Polytechnical University, with patrons from Shaanxi Normal University, Xi'an University of Technology, Macau University of Science and Technology, among others.

ICICN is an annual conference launched in the year of 2013 and has been successfully held in various locations worldwide. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for researchers, scholars, and scientists in the fields of information, communication, and networks to exchange their ideas face to face. The organizing committee warmly invites you to participate in ICICN 2023 in Xi'an. With your contribution, we can advance the state-of-the-art in information, communication, networks techniques, and their applications.
