IIC Events

Events form the backbone of the IIC and take place throughout the year and around the world.  They give members and non-members the chance to meet in a neutral environment, form informal bonds and forge solutions to policy and regulatory issues.

The iic yearbook


IIC Yearbook 2017

The IIC Yearbook captures the range of discussion and opinions emanating from our international meetings. It highlights the key challenges posed by technological developments and collates the thoughts and ideas of participants at the meetings.
Against the background of an increasingly connected society, and the looming impact of Artificial Intelligence and the “Internet of Things”, the report explores how policy and regulatory thinking has evolved, or stagnated, around the major issues. It also provides the basis for our 2017 agenda which will focus on topics such as

• Globalisation and convergence
• Building the data economy
• Privacy and cybersecurity and
• Emerging connectivity technologies

The Yearbook is produced for, and circulated only to, our Members. As well as having copies of the yearbook, becoming a member gives your organisation free attendance at many of our events and an opportunity to help shape the meeting agenda. Members are invited to join brainstorming sessions ahead of major global events to ensure that all current ‘hot’ topics are covered. Join the IIC
