I would like to remind you of the CAPE-OPEN 2017 Annual Meeting on October 12 and October 13, 2017 in Sunbury-on-Thames, UK, close to London. The event, organized by CO-LaN, will be hosted by BP at their International Centre for Business and Technology.

The CAPE-OPEN 2017 Annual Meeting is intended for developers and end-users of process simulation software. Participants will learn about the most recent implementations of CAPE-OPEN, about what benefits CAPE-OPEN may bring and what technical progress CO-LaN has achieved over the past year. The 2017 Annual General Meeting of CO-LaN members is also a part of the event.

We are putting together what we expect to be an interesting program: come to learn about results of Phase 2 of the CAPE-OPEN middleware (COBIA) project, about the progress made by all Special Interest Groups (Thermo, Unit, Interoperability, Methods & Tools) and about implementations and use of CAPE-OPEN by CO-LaN members and non-members. The CAPE-OPEN 2017 Annual Meeting will start on October 12 morning and will end after lunch on October 13.

Participation to the CAPE-OPEN 2017 Annual Meeting is free of charge. As the number of places is limited, registration is required for organizational reasons. Each participant will have to organize for his/her own accommodation.
