SOFA-User day



SOFA-User Day

Following the success of the 2013 edition in Lille, VRIPHYS will be preceded by a half-day tutorial/workshop for SOFA-users on Tuesday November 3.

SOFA is an open-source framework primarily targeted at real-time simulation, with an emphasis on medical simulation. It is mostly intended for the research community to help develop newer models and algorithms. SOFA is currently developed by 4 INRIA teams: Mimesis, Imagine, Defrost and Asclepios. Based on C++, the SOFA engine is build using a flexible plugin architecture. With its high level of modularity, SOFA appears to be an efficient tools for benchmarking and developping new training medical technologies. More information about SOFA can be found here.

This SOFA-User half day will take place at the Nautibus building (VisioConference Room, ground floor) as a side-event of the VRIPHYS conference (see traveling instructions here).

This idea of this meeting is to propose some tutorials for SOFA and to present recent work based on SOFA. This will also be the opportunity to increase exchange and communication within the SOFA community.

Preliminary program (14:00 - 17:00):


  • Main principles of SOFA (30min)
  • How to create your own scene (XML / Python) (30min)

-- short discussion time --

  • Examples of recent applications: (1h)
    • Soft-Robot
    • Neurosurgical simulator
    • Cryosurgery simulator
    • Augmented reality
    • Solvers in Compliant
  • Interactive tools for scene creation - Live Coding (30min)

-- short break --

  • Future: a SOFA consortium (15min+discussion)
