The OpenVSP Workshop is scheduled for September 15-17 this year and will be a fully virtual, free, and open event! There are still open time slots remaining so we are opening our call for papers or presentations to include everyone interested. If you are using OpenVSP to educate or in university design courses, tell us about your experiences. If you have had successes or failures using OpenVSP in your work or hobbies, we’d like to hear about them. If you have found a new and interesting way to leverage OpenVSP to integrate into other tools or to streamline your processes, let us know. Viewers no longer need to register. Simply follow the links when they are posted! Those interested in presenting should make their intent known by August 31 to allow sufficient time for planning.
The Workshop will be streamed through the OpenVSP YouTube Channel. Real-time comments and questions will be available through the YouTube Live Chat on the feed. The moderators will either answer these in the chat feed or forward the questions to the presenter to answer directly. Presentations will start at 11 a.m. and continue until 5 p.m. each day (U.S. Eastern time). Each talk will begin promptly at the top of the hour and be a maximum of 45 minutes in length providing a 15 minute break for Q&A and setting up the next presenter. The event schedule will be posted on the 2020 VSP Workshop Wiki page along with links to the live feed by September 7th. Topics to be presented will range from introductory material to advanced modeling techniques as well as ongoing software improvements and feature additions. This year we also hope to host live developer sessions where advanced users will walk you through building OpenVSP from the Git source and how to build and use the OpenVSP Python API.
Please email Brandon Litherland if you have any questions about the Workshop or would like to be a presenter. We look forward to seeing you!
