Dear Simbios community,

Below two announcements of interest:


Simbios is excited to announce its upcoming OpenSim Jamboree

Friends -

We will hold our next OpenSim workshop July 12-14 on the Stanford University campus.  This workshop is intended for OpenSim software developers and advanced OpenSim users who want to work directly with the OpenSim staff on specific research projects.  On the first day of the workshop, an overview of OpenSim will be provided. The second and third days will be devoted to working on problems that you and other participants bring to the workshop. For example, you might want to calculate muscle and joint forces during movement, generate simulations from motion capture data collected in your lab, add an orthothesis to your gait model, write a new muscle model or controller, or analyze the results of your simulations. You will have the opportunity to work in small breakout groups with OpenSim experts on your research problems. The workshop depends on you bringing specific projects that you will work on during the workshop.  Registration is limited to 20 participants.  The workshop is free but you must apply and register.  The registration page is:

An announcement of interest to the Simbios community:

The National Resource for Biomedical Supercomputing (NRBSC) is
soliciting proposals for computer time on Anton, a special-purpose
supercomputer for molecular dynamics (MD) simulation designed by
D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES). A 512-node Anton machine will be made
available without cost by DESRES for non-commercial research use by
universities and other not-for-profit institutions commencing in late
2010. The machine will be hosted by NRBSC at the Pittsburgh
Supercomputing Center (PSC), with funding from the National Institute
of General Medical Sciences under grant RC2GM093307. See
http://www.nrbsc.org/anton_rfp for detailed information on writing and
submitting proposals.

Regards,   Jeanette
