The Henley Symposium and Summer School on Organisational Semiotics, formerly the International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations (ICISO), until 2005 the International Workshop on Organisational Semiotics (OS) and in 2006 and 2007 the International Conference on Organisational Semiotics (ICOS), will focus not only on theory building, but also on practical benefits gained through the application of methods and techniques derived from various OS approaches. The purpose of the event will be for exchanging and sharing ideas and experience in research, teaching and application, which allows participants to develop high quality research papers, promote cooperation on projects and develop research proposal as well as build networks among researchers and practitioners.

ICISO was an IFIP WG 8.1 (Design and Evaluation of Information Systems) Working Conference and part of a series of international events devoted to the latest research in informatics and applications of Organisational Semiotics in organisations.

The conference is organized by Organisational Semiotics Community hosted by the Informatics Research Centre at the Henley Business School, University of Reading.
