On behalf of CO-LaN, I send you our best wishes for the New Year. CO-LaN had many activities in 2018 and look forward to even more in 2019, with as much interaction as possible with you.

The Annual Meeting will be one of the highlights of next year, presumably in October.

The Methods & Tools Special Interest Group is working hard to specify in details the installation packages for COBIA Phase II deliverables so that the Interoperability Special Interest Group may develop and distribute these. The UNIT Special Interest Group is making really good progress on the Petroleum Fractions interface specification and the end of this revision is getting close. Major progress has also been achieved by the Thermo Special Interest Group on the new Chemical Reaction interface specification. Very fruitful discussions have taken place within the Technical Steering Group of the upcoming Certification Special Interest Group. So the end of 2018, since the CAPE-OPEN 2018 Annual Meeting, has well prepared the path for 2019.

Once more don’t hesitate to take the CAPE-OPEN survey if you have not yet. Unfortunately I am sure that all the recipients of this CAPE-OPEN newsletter have not taken the survey.

You may distribute the link (see within the Post on the website) to anybody you feel could take it. For more visibility, we have also moved the access to the survey to CO-LaN website homepage. Do remember that the survey is primarily targeted at end-users of CAPE tools, not at end-users familiar with CAPE-OPEN.

Feel free to point to this Post within your organization.
