CSDMS Student Modeler Competition

CSDMS Student Modeler Competition

The Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS), invites graduate students from the earth and computer sciences to compete for the “2020 Syvitski Student Modeler Award.”

If you have completed an outstanding research project in 2019 which involved developing an earth science model, a modeling tool or module linking technology, you qualify to compete for this award! Models can be on all earth surface topics that our community embraces; terrestrial, coastal, marine, hydrological, ecological, geodynamics and the dynamics of landscapes and human dimensions.

Entries will be judged by a panel of experts in the field on the basis of ingenuity, applicability and contribution toward the advancement of geoscience modeling. Software experts on the panel will evaluate open-source code contributions and judge coding best practices - so you are encouraged to submit your code. A prize will be awarded for the top submission! In addition, CSDMS will provide travel funds for the top two submissions to attend the CSDMS 2020 Annual Meeting, May 19th through 21st in Boulder, Colorado.
