Awards


This year the International Meshing Roundtable will be presenting six awards. These awards include:


Best Technical Paper Award

The conference steering committee will select the best paper appearing in the annual conference proceedings based on the reviews.  The factors on which the best paper is selected include Originality, Technical Quality, Impact, Relevance to the IMR, and Presentation. 


Best Technical Poster & Best Student Poster Award

Awards will be given to the Best Technical and Best Student Posters. The Poster Session is an ideal forum for authors who would prefer not to submit a formal technical paper, but would like to illustrate state-of-the-art techniques and procedures in which they are currently involved. Session speakers are also invited to display practical results of their work at the poster session. The conference steering committee will select winners for the best technical and student posters. To participate in the poster session, you must be attending the conference. Mark the appropriate box on the registration form to indicate your participation and the number of posters you intend to display at the poster session.

Please reference the Poster Session page for further detail.

Poster Criteria:

  1. Technical issue being addressed
  2. Creativity of proposed solution to issue
  3. Impact of solution on technical community
  4. Quality of technical presentation


Meshing Maestro Poster Award

The annual Meshing Maestro is selected by attendees of the poster session.  The winner has the opportunity to have their design used for next year's conference T-Shirt.  The primary criterion used by the peer review for the Meshing Maestro award is based on the aesthetic appeal of the mesh. Therefore, in this category, we solicit posters that emphasize striking visuals with few technical details.

Please reference the Poster Session page for further details.


Meshing Contest

The award winner of the Meshing Contest will be selected by the International Meshing Roundtable steering committee. This contest is based on a CAD model that is to be meshed by the contest participants. The primary criterion used for the Meshing Contest award is based on the aesthetic appeal of the mesh.

Please reference the Meshing Contest page for further details.
