Excellence in Materials Science Applications Publication Contest Winners Announced
2016 Winners Announced
We wish to congratulate authors Im, Shin, Jang, Kim, and Choi from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, for submitting the winning paper, “Maximizing the catalytic function of hydrogen spillover in platinum-encapsulated aluminosilicates with controlled nanostructures," published in Nature Communications.
We also wish to congratulate authors Armaković, Armaković, and Koziel, for submitting the runner-up paper, “Optoelectronic properties of curved carbon systems," published in Carbon.
We received an outstanding collection of great papers that demonstrated wide-ranging applications of the Schrödinger’s Materials Science Suite, and the winning publication was selected based on a number of criteria, including the impact factor of the publishing journal, importance of the discovery, utilization of the MS Suite, and the importance of the application area. We want to thank everyone for submitting their work for consideration.
We look forward to another round of excellent submissions when we open the 2017 Contest near the end of this year.
Schrödinger, Inc. is pleased to announce the Excellence in Materials Science Applications Publication Contest. The prize is a fully configured Exxact Materials Science System, ready for atomic-scale simulation with Schrödinger’s Materials Science Suite, jointly provided by Schrödinger and our partner Exxact.
In order to qualify, you must have published a paper in a peer-reviewed journal describing work that involved use of Schrödinger’s Materials Science Suite. You may enter multiple times, once for every unique publication. You may submit online for each publication.
