Today, the SOFA Consortium
Exactly ten years after the first commit in SOFA, Inria founded the SOFA Consortium in December 2015. This Consortium now:
- Represents the identity of SOFA,
- Organize and develop the community,
- Distribute and make SOFA more stable.
Being closer to the SOFA community is a crucial mission of this Consortium. The Consortium will now help you in using SOFA, contributing to SOFA, finding the right contact for your need and even advertise your work based on SOFA. So do not hesitate to contact us for any question !
SOFA, you said ?
You might wonder where does the name SOFA come from ! As detailed above, the whole story started at CIMIT in Boston. The laboratory of CIMIT was at that time a large open space. But, a small spot was dedicated to brainstorming with a white board and … a sofa. A name was found: SOFA standing for Simulation Open Framework Architecture !
