ASME-CIE GRADUATE RESEARCH
An opportunity for graduate students early in their research program (within 1 year of starting a MS or 2 years of starting a PhD) to present their current work to the research community. This provides the students a chance to get external feedback on their preliminary research that may not yet be ready for presentation at the conference in archival form.
TRAVEL SUPPORT IS AVAILABLE!
Date: Sunday, August 4 – 7, 2013
Location: Portland, Oregon
The ASME CIE Division is organizing a poster session for graduate students to present their current research at the ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conferences and Computers and Information in Engineering Conference in Portland, Oregon, USA August 4 – 7, 2013. The purpose of this poster session is for graduate students early in their research program (within 1 year of starting a MS or 2 years of starting a PhD) to have the opportunity to present their current work to the research community. This provides the students a chance to get external feedback on their preliminary research that may not yet be ready for presentation at the conference in archival form.
The research should directly address computers and information in engineering, either through development of new software, application and evaluation of software, or empirical studies of engineering software. Areas of CIE interest include:
- Advanced Modeling and Simulation
- Computer-Aided Product and Process Development
- Virtual Environments and Systems
- Systems Engineering, Information and Knowledge Management
- Advanced Simulation for Manufacturing
- Inverse Problems in Science and Engineering
- Advances in Topology Optimization
- Fundamental Advances in FE Analysis
- High Performance Computing, with Emphasis on Advanced Computing Architectures and Cloud Computing
- Computational Multiphysics Applications
- Material Characterization Methods and Applications
- Uncertainty Quantification in Simulation and Model Verification & Validation
- Interaction and Interfaces
- VR & AR in Industry
- Simulation for VR & AR
- Modeling and Simulation for Additive Manufacturing
- RGB-D Camera Based Techniques and Applications in Design and Manufacturing
- Multimodal INTerfaces for Engineering Design
- Digital Human Modeling for Engineering Application
- Emotional Engineering
- Engineering Applications of Brain Science & Human Models
- Modeling Tools and Metrics for Sustainable Manufacturing
- Design Informatics
- Product Lifecycle Management
- Knowledge-capture, reuse, and management
- Model-based Design and Verification of Complex and Large-Scale Systems
Submission of abstract and application for travel support: May 3, 2013
Notification of acceptance: June 3, 2013
Submission of extended abstract and draft poster: July 01, 2013
ASME CIE Conference: August 4-7, 2013
To participate in the poster session, students planning on attending the conference should submit the following information to Caterina Rizzi:
- Title of your thesis or dissertation
- Abstract of your research work (max 2-3 pages)
- Contact Information for the student and his/her advisor
- Status level of this research (pre-proposal, proposed, preliminary results).
Further details are available at: http://www.unibg.it/vk/cieposter.htm, which has additional information on the proposal template.
CIE Student Travel Grants and Stipends
The ASME Computers and Information in Engineering (CIE) division and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are offering travel support and stipends to support graduate student attendance at the 2013 CIE conference in Portland, Oregon to present a poster on their research.
NIST Travel Support
For several years NIST has been providing support to graduate students, who are U.S. citizens, attend the CIE conference. We believe that the travel support will be available this year, pending approval of funds by NIST. We plan on supporting five students with $1000 each, to cover the cost of travel and accommodation at the conference. The applicants should be U.S. citizens and their research focus should be in the above-mentioned topics. Students pursuing doctoral research will be given priority for these awards.
Twelve Stipends of $750 each are also available to help offset the cost of attending the conference. These stipends are open to any graduate student in any of the areas listed above.
Poster submissions reflecting relevant and high quality research work will be favored in the awarding process.
Awardees of both the NIST travel support and CIE stipends are required to attend this meeting as a condition of the award.
The details of the application are available at http://www.unibg.it/vk/cieposter.htm.
Application must be submitted electronically together with the abstract and other information as requested in the call for posters to the poster session organizer, Prof. Caterina Rizzi, by the abstract submission deadline. To be eligible for a travel award or stipend interested students must be attending a university or college (for NIST awards only in the United States) at the time of the 2013 CIE conference and must be a student member of ASME.
