OpenSim Workshop at the International Shoulder Group Biennial Meeting

Join Dimitra Blana and Ricardo Matias to learn how to use OpenSim with a new shoulder model at the International Shoulder Group meeting in Winterthur, Switzerland

When:13:30 - 18:00, Thursday July 14, 2016
Where:The 11th Conference of the International Shoulder Group (ISG) (14th-16th July 2016), Winterthur, Switzerland
Organizers: 2015 OpenSim Visiting Scholars Dimitra Blana (Keele University, UK) and Ricardo Matias (University of Lisbon, Portugal)

All ISG conference participants are invited to take part in the OpenSim workshop on Thursday July 14th from 13:30 - 18:00. The goal of the workshop is to introduce a newly developed shoulder model, and demonstrate how it can be used to investigate clinically relevant problems. It will feature an overview of the OpenSim software and hands-on team exercises. No prior OpenSim experience is required.

The ISG conference provides a scientific knowledge-sharing platform among scientists, engineers, and clinicians interested in shoulder biomechanics. Besides the OpenSim workshop, other highlights include keynote speeches from Dr. med. Matthias Zumstein (Bern University Hospital) and Prof. Dr. Tobias Nef (University of Bern); eight scientific sessions with 33 oral and 10 poster presentations; and an industrial exhibition supporting the interaction between industry, clinical practice and research. To find out more and register please go to the conference website.

Interested participants should bring a PC laptop with OpenSim 3.3 installed or be prepared to team up with other participants. To reserve a place please tick the relevant box on the conference registration page.
