Italian SCM summit, Parma/Pavia/Torino, Italy.
The Italian SCM summit is an opportunity for people from academia and industry with a passion

At the SCM summit you will:
- be able to further your formal and informal SCM education
- get new information and inspiration you can bring back home
- listen to presentations of problems and results from the research world
- listen to presentations of problems and solutions from the industry world
- meet colleagues with whom you can discuss and share your frustrations - and ideas
- Closer distance and lower cost (than you going to the
Scandinavian SCM Day
in Copenhagen), more homogeneous "culture", same language
- I love it (and know something about it) - and you do too. So let's enjoy ourselves!
Why a "summit"?
- because face-to-face meetings and discussions are so much more productive and enjoyable.
- restricting the number of participants make sure that we have active and intense discussions.
Why "late October"?
- I am usually in Italy (Parma) at that time.
- for some years I have been teaching a course on
in Parma and the local Computer Science Department has volunteered to provide room and local organization help.
Why a Spring Summit in April?
- Italians seem to be too impatient to wait 12 months for the next summit
- it gives me an excuse to go to Italy one more time ;-)
- People from FacilityLive have for several years
been consistent and very active participants in our summits. Now they have generously offered to host our Spring
Summits so we have a possibility to get physically closer to Milano and to establish contacts and collaboration
with UniversitÓ di Pavia.
- One of our "die-hard" participants now works for Emerasoft
in Torino and they have generously offered to host our autumn 2019 summit. This gives us the possibility to visit him
and see a new place. Hopefully it also makes it easier for people from the Torino and Milano area to participate in
