SOFA Events

1st International SOFA Week

Designed to meet all your expectations, a new open & free SOFA event has been designed : the 1st International SOFA Week. The SOFA week would take place:

  • from the 5th to the 9th of November 2018,
  • in Strasbourg (France).

The objective of this event is to gather the entire SOFA community (from the starting SOFA user up to the expert developer), discover about the latest research and industrial projects and and meet companies of the SOFA ecosystem. To be effective and productive, the week will be divided as follows:

Day 1

SOFA training session

To start the SOFA week, a training session is organized in order to introduce new users to SOFA (its community, the open-source code and examples of applications), to provide the theoretical backgrounds on physics simulation, to finally work on both user and developer tutorials.

  • Early-bird (before 15th September) : 500€ / pers. (excl-tax)
  • Regular fare : 700€ / pers. (excl-tax)
Day 2

International SOFA Symposium

The Symposium will focus on research and scientific achievements based on SOFA. This symposium would allow international researchers from the SOFA community to present their scientific work, their plugins and propose live demonstrations. It would also be the opportunity to meet the community, create collaborations and meet the SOFA industrial partners.
Open and free, you can participate to the SOFA Symposium by contacting us and electronically submitting a 1-page abstract (LNCS style).

Days 3-5

6th SOFA Technical Committee

This Committee focuses on technical discussions and decisions on current and future developments in SOFA in order to define the roadmap of the next release. With the Technical Members of the consortium, the technical roadmap of the upcoming releases is thus defined. It is also the opportunity to meet the SOFA dev community and code all together!
Open and free for all SOFA developers willing to get closer to the community.

SOFA training sessions

Regular training

The SOFA Consortium organizes regular training sessions to start your development with SOFA. The training aims at bringing all the basics to create your own physics simulation and develop with SOFA. The training covers the following topics:

  • an overview of SOFA and its community
  • examples and applications using SOFA
  • a user tutorial
  • from the math to the code
  • a dev tutorial

The upcoming session is scheduled:

  • on November, 5th 2018 in Strasbourg, France
  • Registration Fees: 700€ / participant (excluding taxes)

Tailored training

The Consortium also proposes personalized training. Presentations might be done on specific topics, for a specific audience or at specific dates according to your needs. These training sessions are the opportunity for you to get an efficient and accurate introduction to SOFA, or to start developing your own application with the help of SOFA experts.
