CAE Poster Award 2013 - An acknowledgment to young researchers' creativity

The second edition of the award for "the International Poster Award: A poster for CAE" has been really  successful,  both in terms of participants and quality of the submitted works.
This initiative has been promoted  and sponsored by  EnginSoft, being one of the promotion  and dissemination  activities  that the company is constantly committed in to foster simulation  culture. This award has a double aim: the first is to acknowledge the quality and innovation of the project developed in the universities  and the second is to offer a privileged context in which academic experiences and industrial world could meet and get mutually known.

41 posters,  submitted  by  Italian  and  foreign  universities   and research centers, passed the selection; 5 projects  won the award and 4 deserved the "mention of distinction".

Posters were evaluated and voted by  registered users  and by the Scientific  Committee members, consisting  of professionals committed in transferring and disseminating numerical simulation techniques and knowledge, both on academic and industrial level, therefore  able to influence  the future  of R&D:  Aronne Armanini (Università di Trento, Italy), Sanzio Bassini (CINECA, Italy), Roberto Battiti  (Università di Trento and co-founder  of Reactive  Search, Italy), Franco  Bonollo  (Università  di Padova, Italy), Gabriele Dubini (Politecnico di Milano, Italy), Natalie Fedorova (ITAM SB RAS, Russia), Giorgio Fotia (CRS4, Italy),  Michael Gasik (Aalto University,  Finland),  Carlo  Gomarasca  (Ansys,  Italy) Gianluca Iaccarino  (Stanford  University,   USA), Giuseppina Maria Rosa Montante (Università di Bologna, Italy), Enrico Nobile (Universita di Trieste, Italy), Bernardo Schrefler (Università di Padova, Italy), Christos Theodosiu (DTECH Corp., Greece) and Giorgio Zavarise (Università del Salento, Italy).
