The DaS Symposium at COFES 2016
April 7, 2016
The Design and Sustainability (DaS) Symposium is a leadership exploration of the future of design and sustainability software for sustainable products, infrastructure, and environments.
COFES is a unique gathering of leaders representing diverse industry sectors with strategic interest in software. The DaS Symposium exists within that community to focus on sustainability. It reaches across disciplines and industries as it explores solutions to the sustainability challenge.
The goal of the DaS Symposium is to bring sustainability to the forefront of the conversation among software developers and to look for opportunities and issues that may be best served by the industry as a whole, rather than by individual players within the industry. We hope to inspire, raise awareness, build relationships and seek sustainable synergies.
Founding members of The DaS Symposium include Autodesk, buildingSMART Alliance, CIFE, Cyon Research, Gensler, PTC, Siemens, SolidWorks, and Sustainable Minds.
The bulk of the DaS Symposium will take place on Thursday, April 7, from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM PDT, followed by a Roundtable discussion on Saturday as part of the general COFES program.
We're in the planning stages now and would welcome your input. The agenda will be posted here in January.
