OpenSim and NMS Physiome Workshop

A collaborative team from the Virtual Physiological Human (VPHOP) project and Stanford University will lead an OpenSim/Physiome Workshop on June 30th, 2011 in Leuven (Belgium) prior to the meeting of the ISB Technical Group on Computer Simulation.

The workshop is open to participants with a range of experience using OpenSim. Prior to the workshop, all attendees should install OpenSim on their laptops and, at a minimum, complete the introductory tutorials available online.

The interactive workshop will include formal lectures and team projects, and will demonstrate the latest results from the NMS Physiome integration efforts.


As the workshop will be restricted to a limited number of participants, we ask interested parties to contact us by email at TGCS@faber.kuleuven.be. Please describe your level of experience with musculoskeletal simulation and OpenSim. We also ask that you tell us the specific topics you would like to cover at the workshop.


Morning Session (9 a.m. to Noon)
-Introduction and Workshop Goals
-The OpenSim Workflow for Simulating Motion: lectures and hands-on examples with a focus on best practices and troubleshooting tips

Lunch Break

Afternoon Session (1 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.)
-Overview of the NMS Physiome Project
-Project Introduction and Assignment to Teams
-Team Project Work: teams will work on an assigned project to generate and analyze a simulation of human motion, applying the best practices and troubleshooting tips learned in the morning session
-Team Presentations and Workshop Wrap-up


60 euro. After confirmation, each participant will receive the necessary information to transfer the sum.

The NMS Physiome is a project funded by the European Commission to integrate the communities, technologies and services developed within two research projects - VPHOP funded by the European Commission and Simbios (Center for Physics-based Simulation of Biological Structures) funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
