DARMSTADT, GERMANY – Computer Simulation Technology announced winners of its annual University Publication Award, a prize given to university institutes and researchers for published papers involving applications of electromagnetic simulation.
The CST University Publication Award recognizes the importance of work from university researchers and academics, and grants winners extensions and upgrades to CST Studio Suite.
For papers to be considered in the award, they must meet three conditions: they must be authored or co-authored by university researchers, they must have been published either in scientific journals or conference proceedings, and the numerical results must be entirely or partly obtained through simulations using CST software.
Submissions are evaluated on a number of criteria, including originality of application and theory, clarity of presentation, and the skillful use of CST software. A special award is also given for short papers, of four pages or less, to acknowledge the importance of short conference papers in promoting practical applications of simulation.
“We thank all participants for sending their work for consideration,” said Dr. Martin Timm, director of global marketing, CST. “The range of high quality work we had to choose from this year is a testament to the importance of continuing to support research by universities and their students.”
