CST Announces University Publication Award 2018 Winners

DARMSTADT, Germany, Jan 2, 2019 – Computer Simulation Technology (CST), part of SIMULIA, a Dassault Systèmes brand, announces the winners of the CST University Publication Award 2018, the final iteration of the annual prize given to university institutes and researchers for electromagnetic (EM) simulation papers. From 2019, EM researchers are encouraged to showcase their work in the Dassault Systèmes Project of the Year contest.

Running since 2003, the CST University Publication Award has showcased some of the best work from university researchers and academics in the field of electromagnetism, and has supported winners with 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 EM simulation 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.

This will be the last year of the CST University Publication Award, but student users of CST Studio Suite will still have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and win prizes for their work with the Dassault Systèmes Project of the Year contest. Information about the Project of the Year 2019 will be announced at https://academy.3ds.com/en, while the 2018 contest can be seen at https://academy.3ds.com/en/poty2018.

“It is always a challenge to pick the winners form the large number excellent research works submitted,” said Dr. Martin Timm, marketing director SIMULIA EMAG. “Today we are glad to announce the deserving awardees of the 2018 CST University Publication Award. We’re proud to have run the Award for 15 years now, and delighted to see our software used in so much groundbreaking work, and we hope to see equally outstanding entries in the Project of the Year 2019 contest.”
