Abstract: ICO2017 was scheduled for Annaba, Algeria. It became clear that in the current political climate it will not be possible to hold a well-attended ICO2017 there. This is largely a matter of perception as there is no objective evidence that Algeria is anything but a safe destination. However, as we experienced at Xalapa (swine flu … later established as originating in the USA) and Odawara (irrational fear of radiation leaks from Fukushima), perception is everything, and a good Congress needs the more peripheral attendees for success. Plan B has involved shifting the meeting to Cambridge UK. Boudjéma Samraoui remains in charge of the scientific progamme. Three special sessions are planned, associated with the Cambridge location: "Dragonfly vision"; "Dragonfly flight, celebrating the contributions of Charlie Ellington"; and "Ten years since Philip, looking at advances in fields Philip Corbet contributed to".
