Student Poster Winners at CHPC 2015 Conference

The CHPC National Conference held from 30 November to 4 December 2015 featured 20 student researchers who demonstrated their work through posters. Thy came from various South African institutions of higher learning and across many research domain and showcased their CHPC facilitated research.  

A panel of five independent judges, experts in the fields of engineering, biomedical applications, computational chemistry and material science evaluated the posters, most of which were in one of these fields. Five evaluation criteria were used, namely: presentation, use of high performance computing (HPC), scientific merit, quality of work and insight. The judges initially evaluated each poster independently, then compared notes and made a group decision on the winners.
