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.

Project Slides

On the first day, participants present Project Goals slides. The workshop slides (one per team) are intended to help the OpenSim team, and your fellow Workshop attendees understand your work, ask questions, and give feedback and support where possible. On the final day, participants present their Accomplishment slides.

Location, Meals and Coffee

The workshop location is at Stanford University, Francis C. Arrillaga Alumni Center, 1st Floor Barnes-McDowell-Cranston Conference Rooms. Directions and maps to the Alumni Center can be found here. On each day of the workshop, we will provide a light breakfast, along with lunch, and plenty of coffee to help maximize productivity.


The workshop starts at 9:00am on Tuesday, March 28. The full agenda is available here (PDF).

Software and Computers

OpenSim 3.3 is the main software version for the workshop. We will also give a preview of what is coming in OpenSim 4.0 as one of the lectures on the first day. We expect participants to use their own laptops. Power supplies and wireless internet access will be provided.
