The Methods & Tools Special Interest Group met from 5 pm till 6 pm Central European Time.

Attendees: Bill BARRETT (U.S. EPA), Jasper van BATEN (AmsterCHEM), Michael HLAVINKA (Bryan Research & Engineering), Michel PONS (CO-LaN)

Outcome: discussed the need for a requirement so that a Flowsheet Monitoring Component gets the list of event notifications supported by a PME. The need is considered sufficient and an additional method is designed to query for that list. This method signature was sketched. Designed also the method for a Flowsheet Monitoring Component to register for a given event. Proposal for a method to let a Flowsheet Monitoring Component un-register from an event notification. The interface specification document was moved to version 1.23 and made available on the repository of the CAPE-OPEN IDL project.
