Creation of the Certification Special Interest Group is being conducted with the help of Malcolm WOODMAN.

Certification was discussed between CO-LaN Management Board and CO-LaN members at the CAPE-OPEN 2016 Annual Meeting, more specifically during the Certification workshop organized there.

Following this Workshop, CO-LaN Management Board revised its proposal and presented an updated scheme for certification at the CAPE-OPEN 2017 Annual Meeting. The revised proposal presented by Linde on behalf of the Management Board includes the creation of a Certification Special Interest Group.

In order to set up the Certification Special Interest Group, CO-LaN has contracted Malcolm WOODMAN on June 20, 2018 with end of 2018 as target for the SIG creation.
