About us

2021 IEEE The 9th International Conference on Information, Communication and Networks (ICICN 2021) is to be held in Xi'an, China during August 19-22, 2021. ICICN is sponsored by IEEE China Council Sensors Council and Systems Council Joint Chapter, hosted by Shaanxi Normal University, China and Xi`an University of Posts & Telecommunications, China, with patrons by Northwestern Polytechnical University, China, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, Macau University of Science and Technology, China, Xi`an Jiaotong University, China, Xi'an University of Technology, China, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China, Liaocheng University, China, and Scienece and Engineering Institute, USA, etc.


ICICN 2021 is to publish latest & high-quality research works on Information, Communication and Networks in theoretical and practical aspects. Authors are solicited to contribute to the special issue by submitting articles that illustrate research results, projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that describe significant advances.

ICICN is an annual conference launched in the year of 2013. We had this conference successfully held in Virtual Conf. in 2020, Macau in 2019, Kuala Lumpur in 2018, Bangkok, Thailand in 2017, Hong Kong in 2016, Florence, Italy in 2015, Phuket, Thailand in 2014, Singapore in 2013. It will provide a valuable opportunity for researchers, scholars and some scientists to exchange their ideas face to face together. ICICN is very special for its strong organization team, dependable reputation and wide sponsors all around the world, which is the leading annual conferences of Information, Communication and Networks for all researchers home and abroad.
