CCMC Student Research Contest 2013
We invite undergraduate and graduate students who are using (or have recently used) CCMC tools and services in a research project or as a part of coursework to enter the contest. A successful project could involve the use of CCMC tools to demonstrate a physical process or concept in new and creative ways, or to gain new understanding of one of the many unanswered questions in space physics.
Winners will be invited to present their work at the 2013 CEDAR, GEM, and SHINE workshops. A fixed amount of travel support will be awarded to cover airfare and lodging (exact amount to be determined).
The report (not to exceed 10 pages) should include:
- a problem statement,
- description of the CCMC models and tools used,
- and references.
A panel of scientists, none of whom will be CCMC staff members, will evaluate the reports. Therefore, students are encouraged to contact CCMC staff members regarding the models and tools available, for consultation on possible research projects, or for assistance with submitting runs or visualizing results.
For examples of previous winning reports, see Results of the First CCMC Student Research Contest.
Deadline for report submission is May 7, 2013. The reports will be evaluated and winners will be announced by mid May.
