CSDMS Student Modeler Award 2016 Application

CSDMS invites graduate students from earth and computer sciences to compete for the annual “CSDMS Student Modeler Award.” If you have completed an outstanding research project in 2015, which involved developing an earth science model (terrestrial, coastal, marine or biogeochemistry), a modeling tool, or module linking technology, you can qualify for this award! Entries will be judged on the basis of ingenuity, applicability, and contribution toward the advancement of geoscience modeling by a panel of experts in the field. We’ll have a prize!  In addition, CSDMS will fund your visit to our annual meeting in Boulder, Colorado May 17-19 to learn all about the CSDMS.  You may possibly have a chance to work with CSDMS scientists to develop your model into a CSDMS component.

Please submit a one-page abstract highlighting your results, a digital copy of your thesis or research paper, and contact information for your supervisor to the CSDMS Facility: csdms@colorado.edu.
