Methods & Tools Special Interest Group reviewed furthermore the proposal developed by AmsterCHEM for interfaces of marshallers within COBIA Phase III, and updated the design and specification document. It is now expected that this review will be completed before next meeting so that implementation may proceed swiftly after that. The goal remains to have a demonstration of marshalling, for example between 32-bit and 64-bit COBIA-based applications, at the CAPE-OPEN 2021 Annual Meeting.

Next meeting is scheduled for July 21, 2021.
