2021 Automation SIG

2021 Working Groups

As part of the SIG’s new format, we are switching up our usual one meeting a year and are swapping it for 5 continuous working groups, meeting (virtually) four times a year, but with on-going communication. We have partnered with the SCB to curate groups with topics which we know are currently leading debates and questions within the Automation community and regulatory bodies.

Our working groups for this year are:

Each group will consist of 12-16 members, and will have a rapporteur and co-rapporteur who will jointly guide their respective members through the SIG process, not only defining and executing the outcomes, but also maintaining regular contact between meetings.
The meetings for the 2021/2022 Report will be held in June 2021, September 2021, December 2021 and March 2022. All meetings will be virtual.  
The Automation Community will be kept up to date on the proceedings of the SIG by regular blog posts outlining the key takeaways, along with a Report which will be published and shared in the latter months of 2022.
