*Apply to Participate in the Fall Virtual OpenSim Workshop **Workshop
Dates: October 23, 2017 to October 27, 2017*

*Application Deadline: September 15, 2017*We are pleased to announce the
next virtual OpenSim workshop to take place over the course of one week in
October. The goal of the workshop is to accelerate the research projects of
OpenSim community members. Participants will work on their projects, with
support and advice from the Stanford University OpenSim team and each
other. The event will span one week, including two video conference
meetings, along with daily chat forum support. It is expected that
participants have already begun to use OpenSim for their project. Teams of
applicants are highly encouraged. Learn more and apply

*ISB 2017 OpenSim Tutorial: Participants Preview OpenSim 4.0*Approximately
160 people attended the OpenSim interactive hands-on tutorial at the 26th
Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics
<http://www.biomech2017.com/index.php>(ISB) in July in Brisbane, Australia.
Participants were introduced to the basics of OpenSim and got a preview of
the upcoming OpenSim 4.0 release, including the new Mac application. Thank
you to all who participated and stay tuned for updates on the 4.0 official
release. You can also sign up to be a 4.0 beta tester

*TGCS 2017 Workshop: *
*Participants Learn about OpenSim 4.0 and Face Off in a Simulated Jumping
Competition*The OpenSim team from Stanford University led a three-hour
workshop at the ISB Technical Group on Computer Simulation meeting this
July in Australia. Over 30 participants learned how to use the Matlab
scripting interface with OpenSim 4.0 through a hands-on tutorial. The
workshop culminated in a competition to maximize the jump height of an
OpenSim model. Thank you to all the participants and congratulations to the
competition winners: Niamh Gill and Amy Lewis. Check out the winning videos
