The International Conference on Bisexuality (ICB), also known as the 'International BiCon' is a periodic gathering of bisexual activists and academics from around the world.
After IC B2 was held in London the following year, the event moved to running every even numbered year. Despite its Dutch origin the event has maintained English as its sole official language and, apart from the first and fourth conferences, has been held exclusively in countries with English as the primary language.
