Computer Simulation Technology (CST), Darmstadt, announces winners of the CST University Publication Award 2013, an annual grant to university institutes and researchers for published papers related to 3D electromagnetic field simulation applications.

The CST University Publication Award acknowledges the importance of work from university researchers and academics by granting winners extensions and upgrades to their CST STUDIO SUITE® installations. 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the Award, showcasing support in further research and innovation within universities.

The selection committee place three conditions for participation: the papers 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 in part obtained through simulations using CST software products.

Submissions were evaluated on a number of criteria, including originality of application and theory, clarity of presentation, and the skilful use of CST software. There is also a special award given for short papers of four pages or less, to acknowledge the importance of short conference papers in promoting practical applications of simulation.

“The quality of the publications submitted was outstanding and this emphasizes why we continue to support university institutions and their research through the CST University Publication Award,” said Dr. Martin Timm, Director of Global Marketing, CST. “Even after 10 years of granting the award, selecting a winner is never easy. Learning about the vast range of interesting and novel areas of application is a privilege and I’d like to thank everyone who has continued to support this initiative by contributing their papers.”
