The CST University Publication Award is an annual grant to university institutes and researchers for their work in the application
of 3D EM field simulation. The winners are awarded with extensions to their CST STUDIO SUITE installations.
Prerequisites for participation are that the papers are authored or co-authored by university researchers, published either in
scientific journals or conference proceedings, and the numerical results are entirely or in part obtained through simulation using
CST software products.
Submissions were evaluated on a number of criteria including originality of the application or the theory, clarity of presentation,
as well as the skilful usage of CST software features. There is a special award for short papers which acknowledges the importance of
short conference papers in promoting the practical application of simulation.
