In 2013 the PhD Award for the best dissertation is presented at the Graduate School of Computational Engineering for the first time. The prize money of EUR 1,000.- is sponsored by the CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG, a company located in Darmstadt. With its 230 employees worldwide it develops and distributes software to simulate electromagnetic fields.

This year, we have two prize winners: Firstly, Dr. Adityah Amah receives the award for his dissertation "Multi-Antenna Multi-Group Multi-Way Relaying". He was supervised by Prof. Anja Klein, head of the Communications Engineering Lab. Dr. Amah's research is considered pioneering work in the field of group communication of mobile partners using a relay station with several antennas. He made use of the advantages of spatial filtering to increase data rates. Very efficient application of video conferencing or online multi-player games becomes feasible this way.

Secondly, Dr. Florian Kummer was awarded for his dissertation "The BoSSS Discontinuous Galerkin Solver for Incompressible Fluid Dynamics and an Extension to Singular Equations" supervised by Prof. Martin Oberlack, head of the fluid dynamics chair. The code of Dr. Kummer incorporates many innovative components, with respect to software design as well as to numerical methods. In the medium term it will allow for simulation of multi-phase flows with a precision impossible for classical numerical methods.

Henceforth, the PhD Award will be presented annually. We are delighted that we have been able to win the CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG as a sponsor for the coming years.
