*Provide Your Feedback to Improve the OpenSim Project *

*Complete the survey by THIS Friday 2/5 for a Chance to Win an Amazon Gift
Card*We've created a short survey to get your feedback on how to improve
the OpenSim software and training resources and enhance our community. Your
input will help shape the OpenSim project going forward. If you complete
the survey by February 5, you will also have the chance to win one of three
$50 Amazon Gift Cards. Complete the Survey

*Apply to the NCSRR/OpenSim Visiting Scholars Program*
*Summer 2016 at Stanford UniversityApplications are due THIS Friday 2/5*
The National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) is
now accepting applications for the 2016 Visiting Scholars Program. The
program is a unique experience that fosters expertise and collaborations in
biomechanical simulations for rehabilitation research. Up to four
individuals will be chosen to visit the NCSRR at Stanford University for a
5-week period during the summer of 2016. Read more and learn how to apply

*New Project and Paper on Optimal Control Using OpenSim and Matlab*
Brian Umberger and Leng-Feng Lee (University of Massachusetts) recently
published a paper <https://peerj.com/articles/1638.pdf> on "Generating
Optimal Control Simulations of Musculoskeletal Movement Using OpenSim and
MATLAB." On their Simtk.org project page
<https://simtk.org/home/directcolloc>, they provide models, results, and a
complete working example of their approach to generating optimal control
simulations through direct collocation.

*Watch Recordings of Any Webinars You've Missed*OpenSim's YouTube channel
<https://www.youtube.com/user/OpenSimVideos> includes recordings of
all our past
so you can tune in to any talks that you missed. Some recent talks include:

   - Kat Steele - Synergy-Based Control in OpenSim: Coupled Muscle Activity
   in Static Optimization <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HKuafsh9pU>
   - Alexander Bruno and Dennis Anderson - Meet Me in the Middle: A
   Thoracolumbar Spine and Rib Cage Model in OpenSim
   - Jeff Reinbolt and Misagh Mansouri - Locus of Control: Are You in
   Control of Your Simulations?

If you're interested in being a webinar presenter or have ideas for
upcoming topics, please contact Joy Ku at joyku at stanford.edu.
