*OpenSim Software to Help Design Smart Suits for Soldiers*
The OpenSim project has a new contract with DARPA, through their Warrior
Web Program <http://www.darpa.mil/Our_Work/DSO/Programs/Warrior_Web.aspx>.
The funds will enable us to add injury risk meters, metabolic predictions,
and other tools for performing simulation-based design with OpenSim, all of
which will be made available to the biomechanics community. Read more about
the project here<http://opensim.stanford.edu/support/darpa_warrior_web.html>

*Postdoctoral Fellowship in the NMBL Lab at Stanford*
The OpenSim project at Stanford University, led by Scott Delp and the
Neuromuscular Biomechanics Lab, is now accepting applications for a
Postdoctoral Fellow. Please see the full
more information and forward to anyone who may be interested and qualified.

*OpenSim Webinar Series*
We've had several webinars this summer and fall on topics ranging from
stroke-rehabilitation to muscle models. You can learn more and watch
recordings at the OpenSim webinar
Our next webinar will feature the NMS Builder software for creating
OpenSim models
from imaging data.

*Title*: NMSBuilder Software for Creating Patient-Specific OpenSim Models
*Speaker*: Giordano Valente, Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli
*Time*: Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time

*Second Call for Abstracts for CMBBE Symposium*
We encourage you to participate in the International Symposium on Computer
Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering (CMBBE) in Salt Lake
City, Utah from April 3-6, 2013. The abstract deadline is December 14. The
CMBBE Symposium will feature an OpenSim workshop, a special session on
Dynamic Musculoskeletal Simulations, and a plenary talk by Scott Delp,
director of the OpenSim project.
