SOFA started ten years ago as an Inria collaborative research project. Now, SOFA includes many different functionalities, several companies rely on the framework as a physics engine and a large community rose over the years. To better meet the expectations of the community, Inria and the SOFA architects decided to create the SOFA Consortium.
The objectives of the SOFA Consortium can be defined as:
- Represent the identity of SOFA,
- Structure and develop the community,
- Coordinate the development of SOFA to make it always more efficient and stable,
- Promote any activity and achievement using SOFA!
