The Methods and Tools Special Interest Group met from 5 pm till 7 pm Central European Time.

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

Outcome: the conference call first addressed an issue reported with the CAPE-OPEN Primary Interop Assembly. The VTABLE of the IPersistStream interface is wrong. A more elegant solution to the issue was investigated and checked after the conference call. Then the Methods & Tools SIG worked on the report to be given by the SIG at the CAPE-OPEN 2016 Annual Meeting. A draft was developed for the presentation and subsequently circulated. The review of the Errata & Clarifications document on the Utilities Common Interface was postponed to a later meeting since the number of answers was so far disappointing.
