Monthly Report No.80 (April 24, 2017)
Dear AC21 members,
Greetings from the AC21 General Secretariat!
Here are some updates and news to share with you.
1) AC21 members deepen ties at APAIE 2017
The APAIE Annual Conference and Exhibition took place this year from March 20-23 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The AC21 General Secretariat attended and ran a joint booth with Nagoya University at the APAIE.
We met with colleagues from various parts of the world, including those from AC21 members. The AC21/Nagoya University's joint booth drew many visitors and everyday was filled with appointments and meetings.
APAIE acts as a platform for us to discuss with AC21 colleagues in person, and strengthen the partnerships among members.
2) Minnesota students visit Chemnitz
Chemnitz University of Technology would like to share with all of us in the AC21 network the news that a group of students of University of Minnesota, USA paid a visit to Chemnitz in March.
It is expected that this visit gives a strong spur to the development of active student mobility and close relationships between the two universities.

3) Steering Committee (STC) Meeting 2017: Scheduled date and attendees
The tentative schedule prepared by Gadjah Mada University says that the STC Meeting 2017 at Gadjah Mada University is expected on July 10, 2017, one day before the start of the IGS 2017.
We would also like to remind you that the AC21 STC Meeting 2017 at Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia will be held only for STC members, in order to streamline the relevant arrangements and costs, and facilitate effective discussion at the Meeting.
Furthermore, from 2017 onwards, the STC Meeting will be held not only as a closed meeting exclusively for STC members, but also on a "paperless" basis, from the perspectives of time- and cost-efficiencies, as well as of eco-friendliness. STC Meeting attendees are advised to bring their own laptops.
Thank you for your continued support of AC21 and its activities.
