SFSIC Congresses

Since its creation, the SFSIC has organized a congress every two years (even years). Thought to be an intense moment of knowledge sharing and generation. These congresses allow us to regularly assess the state of research and compare achievements and advances within our scientific community. SFSIC congresses are an opportunity to discuss all research fields defining and composing Information and Communication Sciences. They progressively build the disciplinary reflection through works on organizations, media, techniques, mediations, signs, situations, and communicational processes.

SFSIC congresses are organized by our Association in collaboration with a different laboratory for each edition. The SFSIC assumes the scientific responsibility of the congress. The laboratory ensures the coordination and the logistics of the event. Both partners are responsible for the communication and the financial responsibility of the event.

SFSIC congresses are organized according to international scientific standards: call for papers, scientific committee, double-blind selection, publication of the scientific program, congress, publication of proceedings, etc.

These congresses allow the presentation of the work of the SFSIC accredited Study and Research Groups (GER). The latest editions also hosted panels allowing vivid questions to find a space of expression. The ” Young Researcher ” prize, awarded during the congress, distinguishes, and rewards a thesis judged excellent in the discipline.
