Laboratory for Dynamics of Machines and Structures
Open-source Scientific Computing in Structural Dynamics
Conference and Summer School
We are pleased to announce that the Open-source Scientific Computing in Structural Dynamics Conference and Summer School will take place in June 2023.
This conference and summer school is started to promote and accelerate open source-based research in the field of structural dynamics.
Single-track presentations of open- source effort related to structural dynamics are planned for the first two days (Monday and Tuesday). While the Summer school will focus
on open-source effort related to the Python programming language, other programming languages (e.g., Matlab) are welcome for the conference presentations.
The summer school will accept up to 20 attendees per track (first-come, first-serve basis).

Gunnstein T. Frøseth is the author and maintainer of several popular open-source packages, including fatpack which is a python package for fatigue analysis of structures. He is also an Associate Professor at the Department of Structural Engineering, NTNU, where he teaches structural dynamics, signal processing and system identification. His research interest is rooted in condition assessment and service life estimation of structures and includes research in image processing, computer vision, fatigue of materials and load modelling.
Janko Slavič is the maintainer of several open-source packages, including pyEMA, pyUFF, pyExSi, and FLife. He is also a co-author of the 2020 Nature Methods publication on the development of Scipy. Dr. Slavič is a full professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ljubljana; he is active in the field of structural dynamics and signal processing. Besides his open-source effort, he has been particularly active in Vibration fatigue, High-speed image-based EMA, 3D printed sensors and actuators.
The conference and summer school will be held at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Aškerčeva 6, Ljubljana, Slovenia.
All other planned events (social etc.) will take place within walking distance of the faculty.
Target audience are PhD researchers, PhD or final year MSc students working in the field of structural dynamics.
Attendees have the option to obtain 3 ECTS.
What to expect
At the conference, you can expect to learn about the recent effort in the development of particular open-source packages related to structural dynamics scientific research.
At the summer school we will help you to understand how the open-source community operates and how to write open-source code so that it can be used by other researchers.
Summer school attendees will receive the full source code of the summer school.
Three tracks are planned (see preliminary program).
The course language is English.
The summer school will heavily depend on the programming language Python.
Basic knowledge of Python is expected. The users of Matlab should be able to quickly catch up.
