Open Simulation Platform Conference 2023

Open simulation platform

The Open Simulation Platform (OSP) team invites you to our yearly OSP Conference on November 14th 2023.

What do we want to achieve with the conference? We would like to welcome you who have never used the OSP but heard about it and would like to learn more on how it can be used. Equally, we want to maintain contact with all active users and developers of OSP. We will share user experiences and practical ‘best practices’ to further foster the support for OSP as a standard for co-simulation.

Tell me more! The conference is free of charge and will be held physically in Ålesund (Norway).

Q&A. During the breaks the OSP team is available to answer your questions about OSP and co-simulation to the best extent of our abilities.
