Advanced User Workshop at Stanford

An OpenSim Workshop will be held on the Stanford University campus for advanced users to work on their OpenSim projects. Workshop space is limited and registration will close when available slots are filled.


This workshop is intended for advanced OpenSim users and developers who want to work directly with the OpenSim staff on specific research projects. Attendees are expected to already have their project underway, with preliminary results.


The workshop time will be primarily spent working on participant projects. The first day will include introductions and brief lectures about using OpenSim for research and design. 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. The success of the workshop depends on you bringing specific data and projects that you will work on.


Registration has now closed


The project proposal should be at most one page (11pt font, single spaced). Please use the following outline to organize your proposal:

1) Project Goal(s) and Approach: Describe the goal(s) of the proposed project and your planned approach at the workshop.

2) Development Challenges: Explain current or expected challenges and bottlenecks.

3) Expected Results and Impact: State the outcome of your work and its impact on your broader research goals.

4) Participant Background: Briefly describe your background and prior experience as an OpenSim developer. Explain why you are interested in attending the workshop. If a group, provide this information for all group members; this information may be included on an additional half page


We highly encourage those collaborating on a single project to participate in the workshop together. If there are more than one person applying as part of a project, everyone should complete the registration form, but please submit only one research proposal.
