OpenSim Fellows Friedl De Groote (KU Leuven), Ilse Jonkers (KU Leuven), Massimo Sartori (University Medical Center Goettingen), Giordano Valente (Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute), Mariska Wesseling (KU Leuven) and Dimitra Blana (Keele University, UK) are organizing an OpenSim workshop in Leuven, Belgium, February 6th - 8th, 2017.


This workshop targets OpenSim users who are familiar with the tutorials but want to gain more insight in the data processing workflow in OpenSim and want support from experienced OpenSim users to import their own motion capture data in OpenSim. 

Workshop location

The course is organized on the campus of the Faculty of Movement and Rehabilitation Science, Tervuursevest 101, 3001 Leuven, Belgium. Leuven is located 15 min by train from Brussels National airport. See this map for the location of the workshop, course dinner on Monday evening, and various lunch options. 


The agenda is available here.
