On March 5 and 6, 2012 the 13th international CAN Conference (iCC) will take place at the Hambach castle in Neustadt an der Weinstraße (Germany). Also on March 5, 2012 the CAN in Automation (CiA) international users? and manufacturers? group will celebrate its 20th anniversary with an evening reception free of charge for CiA members. Non-members will need to pay for it. The Hambach castle is rich in history and is called the cradle of German democracy. It was in 1832, when about twenty- to thirty-thousand people of all ranks of society and different nations went up to the Hambach castle for a big festival during which they claimed liberty, civil rights and national unity in many fiery speeches. This makes the Hambach castle a perfect location, not only for the 13th international CAN Conference, but also for the 20th anniversary of the democratically organized CiA users? and manufacturers? group, which supports the democratic bus system CAN.
