COMSOL employees, employees of COMSOL distributors, COMSOL Certified Consultants, and members of the Program Committee are not eligible.
To Enter. (1) Submit an abstract for the Munich location on or before July 14, 2023 for an oral presentation, poster presentation, or both online at the following address: https://www.comsol.com/conference/showcase-your-work/munich. Abstracts must adhere to the Abstract guidelines posted on the Sponsor’s website at https://www.comsol.com/conference/showcase-your-work/munich. You will be notified by the Sponsor if your abstract is accepted. (2) If your abstract is accepted, submit a final paper and/ or poster in compliance with the Paper Submission Guidelines and/or guidelines in the Poster Template found on the COMSOL Conference 2023 website for the respective type of submission (“Work”) on or before September 22, 2023, or such other date as has been specified in writing by the Program Chair for the COMSOL Conference Munich 2023. (3) Register for the COMSOL Conference Munich 2023 at https://www.comsol.com/conference/registration/munich.
Selection Process. The Program Committee Members for the COMSOL Conference Munich 2023 (collectively, the “Judges”) shall review each abstract and score the work using the Judging Criteria described below and identify the top ten (10) abstracts for papers with the highest scores. The Program Committee will consist of approximately 30-40 individuals selected by Sponsor based on their education and experience in their respective scientific fields in which the COMSOL Multiphysics® software is used. Those individuals will be identified on Sponsor’s website at https://www.comsol.com/conference/showcase-your-work/munich. Then, a subcommittee made up of five (5) Program Committee members, shall review the final papers for the top ten (10) abstracts identified and shall select the top three (3) final papers using the respective abstract scores assigned by the Program Committee Members and their own application of the Judging Criteria to the final papers. The author(s) of the final papers selected as the winners will be announced at the COMSOL Conference 2023 Munich on October 26, 2023 at the Science Congress Center Munich, Walther-von-Dyck-Straße 10, 85748 Garching bei München, Deutschland. As a separate and additional category, the attendees at the COMSOL Conference 2023 Munich will have the opportunity to vote for the three (3) winners of the Best Posters by Popular Vote. Each attendee has the option to cast one (1) vote to nominate a final poster presented during the Poster Sessions at the COMSOL Conference 2023 Munich on October 26, 2023. In the event a tie in the number of votes for a particular poster would result in more than three (3) posters qualifying for the award for Best Posters by Popular Vote, all such posters shall be deemed winners. The winners of the Best Posters by Popular Vote will be announced at the COMSOL Conference 2023 Munich on October 26, 2023 at the Science Congress Center Munich, Walther-von-Dyck-Straße 10, 85748 Garching bei München, Deutschland. Sponsor and its affiliates reserve the right to announce the names of the winners on their websites worldwide for any purpose.
Judging Criteria. Each Work will be judged in four (4) equally-weighted categories (“Judging Criteria”) with a numerical score between 1 and 5, with 5 being the best possible score in each category. The total score will then be calculated for each Work. The Judging Criteria are: (1) Level of skill in use of COMSOL Multiphysics® software; (2) Originality of the work in the respective field; (3) Completeness of the work including, but not limited to, validation of the model, images, graphs, and other results; (4) Usefulness and interest in the area of work. In the event of a tie for Best Paper, the Judges will select the winning submission by re-applying the Judging Criteria.
Prizes. There is no cash value prize for this Contest. The winners will be presented with a certificate or similar item of recognition. If the winner is not present at the time the award is announced, the Sponsor will send the certificate or similar item of recognition to the address they have been provided by whatever means.
