Previous Meetings

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, followed by a hybrid conference Oxford, UK, in August 2022. In 2024, CAA met in the 22nd different country, when the conference was held in New Zealand.
