The International Chapter, whose territory encompasses the world outside of Italy, arises as an instrument to liaise between local and international activities (strategic planning document - in Italian).
The Chapter's Steering Council was elected during the foundation assembly on December 20, 2014 at Lugano (Switzerland).
AICA's Central Steering Council ratified the birth of the International Chapter in its meeting of February 27, and March 11, 2015, the Chapter's Steering Council took office.
The following categories may join AICA International Chapter:
- AICA members involved in international bodies;
- AICA members living abroad;
- all people, not necessarily Italian citizens, who may be interested to join AICA (which is however an Italian association and has a national nature).
In accordance with the current practice, AICA members who are automatically registered in the Chapter covering the area where they live, may also request to join other Chapters, and in particular the International Chapter; such a request must be suitably motivated, and will be accepted only if the above assumptions are met.
The main contact channel is the Linked In group “AICA – Sezione Internazionale” (in Italian language, reserved to AICA members who have regularly paid the annual membership fee).
For other detail information, please contact the Secretary through the following mailbox: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The main activities undertaken by the Chapter are, for the time being:
- liaison between AICA and IFIP;
- support to international conferences and events located in Italy;
- cooperation with ACM;
- cooperation with IEEE.
