December 22, 2010

Computer Simulation Technology (CST), Darmstadt, announces winners of the CST University Publication Award 2010.

Darmstadt, Germany – Dec. 22, 2010 – The CST University Publication Award is an annual grant to university institutes and researchers for their work in the application of 3D EM field simulation. The winners are awarded with extensions to their CST STUDIO SUITE installations. Prerequisites for participation are that the papers are authored or co-authored by university researchers, published either in scientific journals or conference proceedings, and the numerical results are entirely or in part obtained through simulation using CST software products. Submissions were evaluated on a number of criteria including originality of the application or the theory, clarity of presentation, as well as the skilful usage of CST software features. There is a special award for short papers which acknowledges the importance of short conference papers in promoting the practical application of simulation.

The seventh instalment of the University Publication Award has seen a dramatic increase in the number of submissions, which underlines the growing importance of CST simulation tools in academia.” said Dr. Martin Timm, Marketing Director, CST. “The quality of the publications was outstanding and selecting the winning entries was not easy. We would like to thank everyone who contributed and hope to welcome an even larger number of participants in 2011.
