Overset Symposium Student Poster Contest

The first Symposium on Overset Composite Grids and Solution Technology was held in 1992 by the late Prof. Joseph Steger at NASA Ames Research Center to exploit the synergism of different overset grid practitioners. To celebrate the 10th conference, the organizing committee is launching a Student Poster Contest, named after Prof. Steger.

Poster submissions that cover CFD work for complex geometries, engineering applications, numerical analysis, computer science, and mathematics are welcome. Research work related to overset technology is encouraged but not required—however, extra credit will be given to work that utilizes or further advances overset grid technology. The poster should highlight original work by a student, either in progress or completed within the last two years. The work may involve collaboration with university, government, or industry partners.

Submission Information:

  1. Prepare six 8.5 in. x 11 in. pages describing the work, or any other page sizes and arrangements that will fit on a 24.5 in. x 37 in. board.
  2. Poster boards and easels will be provided for mounting the pages.
  3. Only submissions involving students, either graduate or undergraduate in any discipline, working alone or as part of a team, are eligible for submission.
  4. Individuals are limited to one poster submission (i.e., they cannot submit one as an individual and one as part of a team).

All interested participants should send a brief abstract (1 page or less) to submissions@oversetgridsymposium.org by June 11, 2010. The e-mail should include relevant contact information. Team submissions should designate one person as the point of contact and provide contact information for him/her. Notification of acceptance will be by June 25.

All accepted posters will be displayed during the 10th Overset Grid Symposium with poster contest taking place on Tuesday of the conference (September 21). Poster judging will occur during the coffee and lunch breaks and participants are asked to be present at their posters during these times to answer questions from the judges. Winners will be determined by a committee of experts representing U.S. government labs, academia, and industry. Prizes will be awarded to the top three posters based on scores in technical content and clarity of presentation. In addition, ALL students that submit accepted posters will have their conference registration fee reimbursed following conclusion of the conference.
