Last November, the 2022 edition of the international SOFA Week took place from the 14th to the 18th November 2022. Open and free, this SOFA Week is designed to gather the entire SOFA community, to present technological and scientific advances, while fostering the networking within the community.
We are excited to see the resulting collaborations to come!
230+ registered participants and 30 international speakers at the Symposium
The open-source award program was organized to reward the best open source SOFA contributions. Six contributions were competing this year and the quality of these submissions must be stressed out. The winners were announced during the Symposium:
- Prize of the Organization Committee: Paul Maria Scheikl for his pull-requests fixing memory leaks in SOFA.
- Public’s prize: Stéphane Despierre for his plugin proposing a GPU version of a CholeksySparseSolver

STC#14: Technical Committee
The week ended with the SOFA Technical Committee #14. This bi-annual technical committee governs and takes all technical decisions for the roadmap towards upcoming releases.
Open and free, the STC is the occasion for all SOFA developers to meet and discuss the on-going and future developments in SOFA. It is therefore a unique opportunity to get closer from the dev community and code all together during the coding sprint session. A summary of the STC#14 is available online (see the roadmap page).
