Dear Subscribers,

Aalborg University hosts the following Ph.D. course:

Musculoskeletal modeling by multibody biomechanics

February 28 - March 4, 2011
Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark.

Organized by:
Professor John Rasmussen
Associate professor Mark de Zee
Assistant professor Michael Skipper Andersen

This Ph.D. course introduces techniques for modeling of musculoskeletal systems based on multibody dynamics. Unlike most courses in the field, this one takes a bottom-up approach beginning with kinematics of open and closed chains and ending with analysis of complex and anatomically realistic models. The course uses the AnyBody Modeling System throughout and also contains an introduction to this system.

The course comprises 4 ECTS and runs over five consecutive days of work plus homework assignments.

This course is open to all Ph.D. students from all universities and free of charge.
The course is also open to industrial participants at the charge of 4000 DKK.
Participants are expected to organize their own accommodation.
