1st openCARP Contributor Meeting

14 March 2022: 4 pm - 7pm CET as online workshop

Workshop Agenda | Venue and Accomondation | Travel | Registration and Contact


Highly detailed simulations of cardiac function have become feasible, but performing such simulations remains a highly non-trivial problem, as complex workflows have to be employed to build, parameterize and execute simulations. The main focus of the 1st openCARP Contributor Meeting (March 14, 2022, online) is to provide information to the community how to contribute to both sharing numerical experiments with openCARP and the development of the underlying software framework (the openCARP simulator and carputils as scripting language for the experiments).

We have again planned to split the program into those more interested in contributing on the simulation experiment side and those interested in contributing to the code. If you have rather limited knowledge of openCARP the first one is likely to be the better track.


  • Introduce all necessary information for all kinds of contributions
  • Bring people together with the same interests in contributing
  • Define voluntary groups to implement a project under supervision of an openCARP maintainer
  • Showing recent enhancements and new experiments


The openCARP Contributor Meeting addresses researchers at all career levels (PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, senior scientists) in academia and industry with research interests in computational modeling of cardiac electrophysiology.

Video platform

We will send a link to the video platform directly via email for those who have registered to the workshop.
