On June 1 and June 2, CiA celebrates its 30th anniversary with an in-person event in Nuremberg (Germany).

The two-day event comprises four sessions with presentations and includes the regular annual general assembly with election of the board of directors and members of the CiA Technical Committee and the CiA Business Committee. At the second day, some CiA technical groups have the opportunity to meet. In parallel to these meetings, the newly-elected CiA Business Committee pre-discusses the requirements for 2023.

Besides the official program, there is sufficient time for individual talks exchanging experiences as well as knowledge. This is also the opportunity, to refresh your personal network and to establish new relations. Perhaps, this is the most important topic of the CiA anniversary party. Therefore, the two-day event provides a get-together on the first evening. Reserve not just the date, but also a seat. The number of participants is limited due to the event location.

For registration, please contact CiA office by email: events(at)can-cia.org.
