About ICON

ICON first started in 1989 as the IEEE Singapore International Conference on Networks (SICON’89) to provide a biennial forum for the presentation of research in computer networks, communications and distributed systems. To keep pace with the rapid advancement in computer networks and related fields, the IEEE Singapore Computer Chapter decided to hold the conference annually in 1998. The title of SICON was subsequently changed to International Conference on Networks (ICON) in 1999 to better reflect its growing international standing. Appropriately, ICON was held outside Singapore for the first time in 1999 in Brisbane, Australia.
