CD-adapco has long been dedicated to providing the academic engineering community with industrial strength engineering simulation software. Our simulation tools are used by thousands of users at hundreds of academic institutions, educating the engineers of the future and powering the research programs of today. In recognition of this, CD-adapco is pleased to announce the CD-adapco Academic Poster Contest.
If you are a student or researcher at an academic institution enrolled in CD-adapco's Global Academic Program and have completed a CFD simulation project between 2012 - 2013, you are eligible to submit a poster describing the simulation work that you did for that project.
The author of the winning poster, as chosen by our panel of expert judges, will receive an all-expense paid trip to the 2014 STAR Global Conference being held in Vienna, Austria. The trip includes flights and accommodations (up to a maximum total value of $2,000), and the opportunity to present your work to the gathered audience of industrial simulation experts.
The Top Ten entrants will be invited (at their own expense) to display and represent their poster at the 2014 STAR-Global Conference in Vienna, Austria. This is an excellent opportunity to meet and network with world recognized simulation experts from all around the world.
