Great news! Our open-source project will be present in two major international conferences this year.

MICCAI 2021 (Strasbourg, France)

CMBBE 2021 (Bonn, Germany)

Format of the workshop

These SOFA workshop will propose a session focused on physics-based simulation, with an emphasis on medical simulation. The SOFA Consortium staff regularly organizes training sessions to provide a short introduction to SOFA and its community while ensuring the mathematical, physical and computer science backgrounds in order to start in the best conditions with SOFA. The tutorial day follows a proven program:

  • It starts with an overview of SOFA and its community
  • Examples of academic and industrial uses of SOFA are given to illustrate the range of applications
  • A user tutorial then allows to understand how to build simulation with the open-source library
  • We cover a second time the tutorial to understand the conservation laws governing the simulation and the associated code
  • The training ends with a presentation on how to implement new codes in plugins
