IAESTE Central European Convention or CEC is the major international event in our region.

The first CEC ever was organized in May 1998 in Tuheljske Toplice, Croatia. It was organized by the initiative of Thomas Haim, former National Secretary of IAESTE Austria, and Mario Kauzlaric, former National Secretary of IAESTE Croatia. So far there has been 39 CEC conferences.
In 2018, we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of CEC!

Because of the great success, the CEC is being held two times a year, in a rotation schedule – so each country will organize the event every three years. Any country having the status Full member of CER, has the right to organise CEC.

Attending CEC helps you to connect with students from the wider central European area, enhance cooperation among IAESTE Local committees in Central Europe, get educated in various workshop topics and beyond. And of course get to know the culture of the hosting Country.
