Join us on Tuesday, November 3rd, at the Second Developer Summit on Papyrus and Modelling Technologies for this keynote previewing the Papyrus Industry Consortium.

Over the last year, a group of organizations, composed of end-users, suppliers, and research/academia, have collaborated on the establishment of an industry consortium focused on the development of Papyrus and related open source components to provide an alternative to existing proprietary modeling tools.

The establishment of this consortium has the potential to be a real game changer in the industry. In this presentation, we will discuss the vision/mission and key goals of the Papyrus IC, and the expected roles of committers in the development of both the open source components and the community.
