Webinar: Musculoskeletal Models Deconstructed
Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time
Apoorva Rajagopal from the OpenSim team will provide an overview of OpenSim model components and describe how different modeling choices affect the simulated dynamics. Learn more and register<http://opensim.stanford.edu/support/event_details.html?id=167>

Video at JavaOne 2016 Conference Features OpenSim
OpenSim is featured in a video that was part of the keynote for the JavaOne 2016 Conference last month. The video will also be shown at regional JavaOne events over the next 9 months. View video<https://youtu.be/_AlZuUCoXGY> (the OpenSim portion begins ~1:55).

Robust, Computationally Efficient Formulations for Solving Dynamic Optimization Problems Using Direct Collocation
Friedl De Groote from KU Leuven, Belgium and BJ Fregly from the University of Florida have recently published their results in the Annals of Biomedical Engineering<http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10439-016-1591-%E2%80%8B9> comparing different direct collocation optimal control formulations for solving the muscle redundancy problem. Their MATLAB code, together with OpenSim models and experimental data to solve the muscle redundancy problem in the leg during walking and running, is available on SimTK<https://simtk.org/projects/optcntrlmuscle>.

Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource (MR3) Network
The National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR), which supports OpenSim, is one of six resource centers from across the United States that are part of the MR3 Network<https://ncmrr.org/>. MR3 Network centers provide infrastructure and access to expertise, technologies, and resources to support medical rehab research, focusing on areas such as clinical trial design, neuromodulation, regenerative medicine, large data research, and translation. To stay connected and receive the latest announcements about funding opportunities, training, conferences, and meetings available through the MR3 Network, sign-up for e-mail updates<https://ncmrr.org/join/>.
