Webinar: SimCP: A Simulation Platform to Predict Gait Performance Following Orthopedic Interventions in Children with Cerebral Palsy
September 13, 2018 at 10am Pacific Daylight Time

Children with cerebral palsy (CP) have complex musculoskeletal pathologies, which are commonly corrected using orthopedic surgeries. To aid the surgical treatment planning process, Ilse Jonkers, Friedl De Groote, and colleagues have developed the SimCP simulation platform to model how clinical interventions will affect the ability of a patient to perform a typical gait pattern. The platform uses individualized musculoskeletal models and muscle synergies to personalize the simulation.

Apply for the Upcoming OpenSim Workshop in Belgium
November 6-8, 2018
Leuven, Belgium

The workshop will focus on getting new research projects started with OpenSim, including data import and OpenSim's workflow tools. It is open to beginning and intermediate users. Friedl De Groote, Ilse Jonkers, and Mariska Wesseling, as well as other OpenSim Fellows and experts, will lead the workshop. Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis.

Apply for the Next Virtual Workshop for Advanced OpenSim Users
Deadline to Apply: September 17, 2018
Workshop Dates: October 22-26, 2018

We are pleased to announce a virtual workshop will 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 OpenSim team and each other. The event will span one week, including several video conference meetings, along with a daily forum and chat support. It is expected that participants have already begun to use OpenSim for their project. Small teams (2-3) of applicants, working on the same project, are particularly encouraged.
