The Methods & Tools Special Interest Group and the Interoperability Special Interest Group held a joint meeting at 5:30 pm Central European Summer Time.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (represented by Bill BARRETT) as Methods & Tools SIG leader, AmsterCHEM (represented by Jasper van BATEN), Bryan Research & Engineering (represented by Michael HLAVINKA), Malcolm WOODMAN, as Interoperability SIG leader, Michel PONS (contractor to CO-LaN as Chief Technology Officer).


The review of the document defining versioning is still under way by Malcolm WOODMAN. Should be finished soon and then the document will be passed onto Bill BARRETT for his own review. Malcolm WOODMAN mentioned that he started to simplify as much as possible the document in order to further increase its readability.

Adjustments were made on what both Interoperability SIG and Methods & Tools SIG will be reporting on the progress made on the versioning document during the last 12 months. High-level points on versioning will be incorporated in the report made by Interoperability SIG at the CAPE-OPEN 2022 Annual Meeting.
