⌘ HISTORY OF THE ICI AND LEGAL STATUS
I.C.I. Founded in 2000
The I.C.I. was founded at Southern Illinois University (Carbondale, Illinois, USA) on 7 July 2000 as the final action of the Communicology as a Human Science Conference. For a chronology of this and subsequent conferences go to Summer Symposium and Professional Development Conference.
After the initial conference, the members of the I.C.I. created a closed internet site [COW: Conferencing on the Web] for research and dialogue. In 2003, the COW was closed down and the ICI Collegium of Fellows approved the creation of a public access internet site [Communicology.org] to enhance information available about the maturing international discipline of Communicology. Much of the history of the discipline is recorded in the etymology references at Definition: Communicology. The software for the present site was activated in July 2009.
