      All ISG 2016 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.
