One of IACEE's major events is its biennial World Conference on Continuing Engineering Education (WCCEE). It is THE international event to meet colleagues in this field and to get acquainted with IACEE. The 2014 WCCEE, held June 24-27, 2014 at Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, USA, was a highly successful conference that brought together nearly 200 participants from 27 different countries and six continents.
