We are happy to announce that 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 Computer Simulation Symposium (http://www.mech.kuleuven.be/TGCS2011/).

OpenSim is freely available to the biomechanics community and enables advanced modeling and simulation of human and animal movement. It provides software for inverse dynamics analysis and forward dynamic simulation and analysis of computer models of the musculoskeletal system.

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. An agenda will be posted shortly on the website. 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.

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.

The price for participation to this workshop is set at 60 euro (including coffee breaks and sandwich lunch).

We expect to confirm your participation by April 1st, 2011.
Kind Regards,
