ACEmat Award in Computational Modeling of Materials

(formerly the AIMMS Award)

The ACEnet Institute for Materials Modeling and Simulation Award in Computational Modeling of Materials is presented at three Science Atlantic student conferences each year. The Award is given for the best undergraduate presentation (oral or poster) using computational methods to study systems of interest to materials science.

The three disciplines are:

Chemistry
Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science
Physics and Astronomy

Judging

Each Award will be made following a procedure determined by the relevant Science Atlantic Committee. At any conference, if there is no suitable candidate, the judging committee has the right to not give an award. The decision of the judges is final.

The Award

Each ACEmat Award is a $100 cash prize, which is announced at the conference. By accepting the prize, the winner agrees to have his or her name, presentation title, and abstract provided to Science Atlantic and the sponsor.

Sponsor

The ACEnet Institute for Materials Modeling and Simulation (ACEmat) is dedicated to activities that support the materials modeling research community in Atlantic Canada. ACEmat is a cooperative effort with ACEnet, the high performance computing consortium that provides computational facilities to university researchers in the Atlantic Provinces.
