CST Announces University Publication Award 2017 Winners

DARMSTADT, Germany, Jan 12, 2018 – Computer Simulation Technology (CST), part of SIMULIA, a Dassault Systèmes brand, announces the winners of the CST University Publication Award 2017, an annual 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 their CST STUDIO SUITE installations.

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 would like to thank all the participants for sending in their contributions,” said Dr. Martin Timm, director of global marketing, CST. “Selecting a winner is never easy, especially considering the vast range of interesting and novel areas of application as well as the outstanding quality of the contributions.”

The following papers have been selected to receive the CST University Publication Award 2017 and are listed in no particular order:

“Dual-Band Electronically Beam-Switched Antenna Using Slot Active Frequency Selective Surface”;

Chao Gu, Benito Sanz Izquierdo, Steven Gao, John C. Batchelor, Edward A. Parker, Fan Qin, Gao Wei, Jianzhou Li, and Jiadong Xu;


“Chirping Techniques to Maximize the Power-Handling Capability of Harmonic Waveguide Low-Pass Filters”

Fernando Teberio, Ivan Arregui, Adrian Gomez-Torrent, Israel Arnedo, Magdalena Chudzik, Michael Zedler, Franz-Josef Görtz, Rolf Jost, Txema Lopetegi, and Miguel A. G. Laso;
