The two first MIDCAS workshops, held on 16 February 2010 and 5 October 2010, have been a real opportunities for valuable discussions about the scope of the project, its organization and the way it intends to support the related standardization effort. Possible different interpretation of explicit or implicit requirements has also been discussed.
