Previous Meetings

CAA recently held its 50th conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The first CAA meeting was convened in 1973 at the University of Birmingham in England. For the first two decades, the organisation met annually in the UK. In 1992, the CAA conference expanded to continental Europe, meeting in Aarhus, Denmark, and thereafter other European cities. In 2006, CAA continued to grow internationally, holding its first meeting outside of Europe, in Fargo, North Dakota, USA. Since then, the CAA conference has also traveled to Asia and Australia. In 2020, the conference had to be cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the first time that an annual meeting has not been held since 1973. In 2021, CAA moved online, with the first virtual conference attracting more than 350 participants from around the world. CAA held a hybrid conference August 2022 in Oxford, UK.
