In mid-2013, CO-LaN Management Board has awarded the CAPE-OPEN 2012 Award to Daniel Wagner for the first implementation of CAPE-OPEN interfaces in a process modelling environment distributed as open source (DWSIM):
Many thanks to the people at CO-LaN, and a special thank you for Mr. Michel Pons (CO-LaN CTO), Jasper van Baten (developer of COCO simulator), Harry Kooijman (developer of ChemSep) and César Pernalete, who received the plaque in my behalf. I couldn't have done all that work without your help.
The CAPE-OPEN Award is presented every year since the creation of CO-LaN to persons or organizations who have significantly contributed to the advancement of CAPE-OPEN.
