This workshop covers advanced topics in OpenSim. The workshop is an opportunity to learn more about how OpenSim works "under the hood" and get supervised, hands-on assistance with problems participants bring to the workshop. On the first day, participants will introduce their projects and the OpenSim team will present a lecture on validating biomechanical models and simulations. The second and third days will be devoted to working on problems participants bring to the workshop. Participants have the opportunity to work in small breakout groups with OpenSim experts on their research problems.
This set of wiki pages hosts slides, relevant links, participant project information, and other materials for the workshop.

Scripting (Matlab and Python) User Suggestions
Scripting is becoming an important tool for the OpenSim community. It would very be helpful for us to get feedback on issues and suggestions that you have. Example scripts are probably the best resource for learning how to write scripts, we would like to get suggestions for example scripts (change simmspline, adding a constraint, running the IKsolver, etc) for an online community repository. Please follow this link to a shared spreadsheet and give us feedback and suggestions. Thankyou!
