Join Our Next OpenSim Webinar "OpenSim Moco: Software to Optimize the Motion and Control of OpenSim Models"

November 14, 2019 at 10am Pacific Standard Time
Moco is a musculoskeletal simulation tool that extends OpenSim's capabilities. It allows users to customize optimization cost functions, such as minimizing metabolic energy or joint reaction loads, for their simulations. With its intuitive interface, Moco enables users to solve problems of motion tracking with custom cost functions; motion prediction without experimental data; and parameter optimization, such as in the design of an assistive device. Moco uses the direct collocation method. During the webinar, Moco developers and OpenSim team members Chris Dembia and Nick Bianco will discuss Moco features and applications, as well as provide a primer on direct collocation.

Last Week for Early Bird Registration for CAMS-Knee Opensim Workshop
February 4-7th, 2020 in Zürich, Switzerland
November 15, 2019 - Early bird registration deadline
We invite you to participate in a 4-day workshop, featuring a unique live collection of in vivo knee joint contact forces<http://www.wiki.orthoload.com/index.php/Knee_joint> and tendon loading datasets, which will be used by participants throughout the workshop. These measurements will be complemented by keynote lectures, software demonstrations, participant research talks, and free time for participants to work on their own projects and consult with experts. The workshop is based on the joint project "CAMS-Knee<https://cams-knee.orthoload.com/>" from the Laboratory for Movement Biomechanics, ETH Zurich & Julius Wolff Institute, Charité - Universitätmedizin Berlin. Next Friday, November 15th, is the last day to register at the early bird prices. Register now<https://opensim2020.ethz.ch/registration/>
