The symposium will include a poster competition highlighting outstanding computational work from U-M students and postdocs. First place is awarded $500, and second $300 and third place wins $200.
To enter the competition, please register for the symposium and submit the title, description and authors of your poster by filling out the registration form.
In 2017, Victor Wu, Industrial and Operations Engineering, won first place for his poster “Multicriteria Optimization for Brachytherapy Treatment Planning.” Co-authors were Marina Epelman, Mustafa Sir, Kalyan Pasupathy, Michael Herman and Christopher Duefel.
The second place poster was from Sambit Das of Mechanical Engineering: “Large Scale Electronic Structure Studies on the Energetics of Dislocations in Al-Mg Materials System and Its Connection to Mesoscale Models” with co-author Vikram Gavini.
Third place went to Joseph Cicchese, Chemical Engineering, for “How to optimize tuberculosis antibiotic treatments using a computational granuloma model” with co-authors Elsje Pienaar, Denise E. Kirschner, Jennifer J. Linderman.
Approximately 50 posters were submitted for last year’s competition. View this spreadsheet to see all the titles and abstracts.
