OpenSim Advanced User and Developer Workshop

An OpenSim Workshop will be held August 15-17, 2011 on the Stanford University campus for advanced users and software developers.


This workshop is intended for advanced OpenSim users and OpenSim software developers who want to work directly with the OpenSim staff on specific research projects.


The first day of the workshop will include lectures, demos, and hands-on exercises about using OpenSim for research. The second and third days will be devoted to working on problems that you and other participants bring to the workshop. For example, you might want to calculate muscle and joint forces during movement, generate simulations from motion capture data collected in your lab, add an orthosis to your gait model, write a new muscle model or controller, or analyze the results of your simulations. You will have the opportunity to work in small breakout groups with OpenSim experts on your research problems. The success of the workshop depends on you bringing specific data and projects that you will work on.
