The ESCAPE 30 European Symposium on Computer Aided Process Engineering, originally scheduled live on August 31-September 2 in Milano, Italy, was held virtually at the same dates.

Within this major conference series, many CAPE-OPEN related papers have been given over its three decades of existence, including the first live demonstrations of CAPE-OPEN based interoperability at ESCAPE-9 in May 1999 at Budapest, Hungary and more recently at ESCAPE-27, research work by the same team at Technische Universität Berlin about another aspect of the transformation model implemented in MOSAICmodelling, that time for Scilab.

At ESCAPE 30, authors from Technische Universität Berlin, BASF SE and Technische Universität Dortmund presented on MOSAICmodeling to develop GAMS code that makes use of a CAPE-OPEN thermodynamic server. This work was already partly presented by Technische Universität Berlin at the CAPE-OPEN 2019 Annual Meeting.
