The Symposium on Collaboration in Aircraft Design was already conducted two times under the auspices of the DLR (German Aerospace Center).
During the 2nd Symposium on Collaborative Aircraft Design which was held from the 2nd till the 6th December 2012 in Hamburg (Germany) first experiences with open source technologies for efficient collaboration such as the CPACS data model (Common Parametric Aircraft Configuration Scheme) and RCE framework software (Remote Component Environment) were shared. Different organizations teamed up in order to work collaboratively on different designs for next generation short range configurations as well as on Blended Wing Body configurations. The 2nd symposium’s information is available at the CPACS project page.
More information regarding the 2nd Symposium on Collaborative Aircraft Design can be found ion the DLR homepage
Information of the national meeting "Kollaboration im Flugzeugentwurf: 1. CPACS/RCE Symposium", which became later the Symposium on Collaborative Aircraft Design can be found here (German language only).
A link list of the used (and compatibel) open access software tools will soon follow.
