There are at least three awards given out at ICMMES Conference each year since 2016:

  • The ICMMES-Sugon Award for Young Scientists sporsored by Sugon, a supercomputing company in China;
  • The ICMMES-CSRC Award for Recent PhD Recipients sponsored by Beijing Computational Science Research Center, a research establishment in China,
  • and (c) The ICMMES-MDPI Award for Best Poster, sponsored by Computation, an open access computational science journal.

The awards are aiming at supporting young scientists working in the ICMMES' focused areas. The winners are selected by a selection committee appointed by the ICMMES Scientific Committee and the local organizing committee. The awards were given by one of Co-Chairs of the ICMMES scientific committee, and the Chair of the ICMMES local organizing committee, at the end of each ICMMES Conference.

The ICMMES Award for the Best GPU-Related Presentation by Students and Post-Docs

The PNY Award for the Best Presentation on GPU Computing and Applications will be given to a student or post-doctoral researcher (up to 2 years after PhD degree). All students and post-doctral researchers who give presentations on GPU computing and applications are qualified to be a winner. The winner will be selected during the ICMMES Conference and will be annouced and presented during the Conference's Closing Ceremory. A selection committee appointed by ICMMES Scientific Committee will be responsible for deciding the winner. The winner will receive a recent NVIDIA high-performance GPU to support his/her research.


Award winners

  • 2016 : Dennis Mierke, Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), Germany, "Efficient Calculation of Sub-grid Distances for Higher-Order Boundary Conditions".




The ICMMES-MDPI Best Poster Award


The ICMMES-MDPI Best Poster Award is given to the best poster presentation at the ICMMES-2022 conference. All participants who make poster presentations automatically qualify to enter, and the winner will receive 500 CHF in cash.
