CAPE-WP_logoThe 14th edition of the European Symposium on Computer Aided Process Engineering (ESCAPE) was held in Lisbon, Portugal from May 16 till May 19, 2004. It was organized under the auspices of the CAPE Working Party of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering.

The ESCAPE conference series is held every year. The series started with ESCAPE-1 held in Denmark (1992).

ESCAPE 14 aimed to bring together researchers and practitioners of computer-aided process engineering (CAPE) community, and to provide a forum to present and evaluate emerging research methods and concepts, and to learn from industrial case studies.

CAPE-OPEN was addressed by ENSIACET in a paper about a new mathematical library.
