The 2016 OpenVSP Workshop will be held August 23-25 at NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field California.
Registration is capped at 100 attendees, so register right away.
There is no charge for the workshop. Early registrants had the option to pay $60 upon arrival for lunch and refreshments.
To register, send an email with the following information to Rob McDonald.
If you cannot attend, don’t worry. The workshop will be live-streamed and recorded for later viewing. No registration is required to view the live stream.
The Workshop will be held at the NASA Ames Conference Center, in Building 152. It is located at: 200 Bailey Rd, Mountain View, CA 94043.
When you arrive at the NASA Front Gate, show ID and tell them you are going to the Conference Center. US Persons must show a valid driver's license. Non-US Persons must show a passport.
We don't have a block of rooms or a particular hotel to recommend. However, there are many choices within just a couple of miles of NASA Ames.
The OpenVSP Workshop consists of presentations and tutorials by VSP developers and power users. Topics range from introductory to advanced model building, reports on cutting edge development, and work that real users are accomplishing with OpenVSP.
