Content:The 11th Conference of the International Shoulder Group (ISG) will be held from 14th-16th July 2016 in Winterthur, Switzerland and will include a half-day OpenSim workshop. The workshop will be led by past OpenSim Visiting Scholars Dimitra Blana (Keele University, UK) and Ricardo Matias (University of Lisbon, Portugal).
All ISG conference participants are invited to take part in the OpenSim workshop on Thursday July 14th from 13:30 - 18:00. The goal of the workshop is to introduce a newly developed shoulder model (https://simtk.org/home/scapulothoracic), and demonstrate how it can be used to investigate clinically relevant problems. It will feature an overview of the OpenSim software and hands-on team exercises. No prior OpenSim experience is required.
The ISG conference provides a scientific knowledge-sharing platform among scientists, engineers, and clinicians interested in shoulder biomechanics. Besides the OpenSim workshop, other highlights include keynote speeches from Dr. med. Matthias Zumstein (Bern University Hospital) and Prof. Dr. Tobias Nef (University of Bern); eight scientific sessions with 33 oral and 10 poster presentations; and an industrial exhibition supporting the interaction between industry, clinical practice and research.
