The NIC Conference aims to develop knowledge, research and understanding for intercultural communication. The purpose of NIC is to promote cooperation in the Nordic countries (including the Baltic countries) between researchers and practitioners interested in intercultural communication. The main activity supported by NIC is the annual conferences on intercultural communication. The conferences are open to scholars and practitioners from around the whole world.
