 Given the challenges associated with travel, social distancing, and staying healthy and safe in the current COVID-19 environment,​ the OpenVSP Workshop organizers have determined that this year’s event will be moved to a fully online, virtual format. ​ We see this as an opportunity to reach those people and groups that normally cannot attend the workshop in-person due to travel issues or scheduling conflicts. ​ We hope that providing an open and free virtual event will enable increased participation among students, teachers, industry professionals,​ and the International community. ​ There is a wealth of knowledge and experience in this robust community and we would love to share that knowledge with the world. ​ To that end, 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. Given the challenges associated with travel, social distancing, and staying healthy and safe in the current COVID-19 environment,​ the OpenVSP Workshop organizers have determined that this year’s event will be moved to a fully online, virtual format. ​ We see this as an opportunity to reach those people and groups that normally cannot attend the workshop in-person due to travel issues or scheduling conflicts. ​ We hope that providing an open and free virtual event will enable increased participation among students, teachers, industry professionals,​ and the International community. ​ There is a wealth of knowledge and experience in this robust community and we would love to share that knowledge with the world. ​ To that end, 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.

 We are evaluating all of our options to make this workshop a success including various virtual meeting and chat programs. ​ Microsoft Teams, Zoom Enterprise, and Facebook Live are among the options under consideration including various chat or instant messing software that will allow question and answer sessions in real-time. ​ Topics to be presented still 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.  Because this workshop can be managed as several individual meetings or stream events, attendees may pick and choose those topics that best suite their interests without having to commit to a full three-day workshop. ​ We will do our level best to ensure that similar topics are grouped accordingly so that you may join for a particular block of time without having to jump between days or morning/​afternoon sessions. ​ Of course, if none of the scheduled times work for you because of work or school commitments or international time differences,​ all of the sessions will be recorded and stored so anyone can access them at any time.  For any presentations or material that are distribution limited, special sessions can be arranged in those cases. We are evaluating all of our options to make this workshop a success including various virtual meeting and chat programs. ​ Microsoft Teams, Zoom Enterprise, and Facebook Live are among the options under consideration including various chat or instant messing software that will allow question and answer sessions in real-time. ​ Topics to be presented still 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.  Because this workshop can be managed as several individual meetings or stream events, attendees may pick and choose those topics that best suite their interests without having to commit to a full three-day workshop. ​ We will do our level best to ensure that similar topics are grouped accordingly so that you may join for a particular block of time without having to jump between days or morning/​afternoon sessions. ​ Of course, if none of the scheduled times work for you because of work or school commitments or international time differences,​ all of the sessions will be recorded and stored so anyone can access them at any time.  For any presentations or material that are distribution limited, special sessions can be arranged in those cases.
