Our groups of experts

The Cetie working groups meet as necessary to ensure progress of the work items and according the availability of participants. A working group meets as frequently as once to 6 times a year depending on the objectives set by the group. Specific technical fields require a plenary meeting, during which participants review all the activities completed over the year.
Meetings are generally scheduled a year in advance in order to facilitate the participation of the members and the organisation of the meetings. This schedule is available from the Cetie website www.cetie.org. Most of the meetings, as well as the agendas and minutes are available in English.
