CAPE meeting 2005 is a Forum for discussion of research topics and results. It takes place once a year, and it is an informal meeting of academic and industrial participants who are interested and active in CAPE (Computer Aided Process Engineering), industrial and education activities.

The CAPE Forum in 2005 is planned to enhance the integration of the researchers from EU members with the colleagues from new member states as well as other countries of Central and Eastern Europe. It should enable the better planning of the future common EU supported projects and other forms of collaboration, the students and the researchers exchange, as well as the presentation of the new research ideas.

The meeting is based on a set of oral presentations, round-table discussions and posters on topics of current interest. This forum is an opportunity where every participant gets a chance to present and discuss common topics of interest.

All academic and industrial participants who are active in the CAPE field, especially from Europe, are invited to participate.
