ICUR, (International Committee for UFO Research) is a federation of ufology groups formed in 1979 with an aim at coordinating research, providing an internationally compatible database of computer-stored data relating to UFO sighting reports, the use of common standards, methods and definitions amongst UFO groups around the world and to promote international cooperation in the research on the phenomenon. ICUR had been the prime mover behind international ufology congresses in London in 1987 and 1989. The administration of ICUR moved around the world from country to country. Dr J. Allen Hynek was appointed Honorary President at the inaugural meeting of ICUR, in recognition of his contributions to the scientific study of UFO phenomena, a post he held until his death in 1986. ICUR has a website at dspace.dial.pipex.com/town/square/el82/icur.htm


Acronym for "Identified Flying Object." Every ufologist whatever is opinion and most people in general are aware not not everything that a witness is unable to identify is an extraterrestrial spaceship. IFO is a term used by ufologists when they talk of the cause of some UFO report that turns out to be something commonplace, such as a plane, car headlights, birds etc.

The core of the controversy around UFOs is that some state that all UFO sighting reports are reports of IFOs while other state that it is not true.
