Following the successful launch of the PSE Model-Based Innovation (MBI)
prize last year, Process Systems Enterprise (PSE) is pleased to announce
the CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2009 MBI PRIZE.
The prize, worth €5000 (EUR), is given for the best published paper in
which PSE’s gPROMS advanced process modelling software is used to generate
research results in a novel area of application or technology.
The 2008 prize was won by a team from Louisiana State University (LSU) and
the University of Sydney comprising Jose Romagnoli, Ali Abbas and Mustafa
Nowee, for their paper “Model-based optimal strategies for controlling
particle size in antisolvent crystallization operations.”
PSE & gPROMS
PSE is a pioneer in the emerging technology of Model-Based Innovation. Our
gPROMS product is widely used in academic research, particularly in areas
of novel technology, to provide quantification to support research results
through the application of first-principles modelling.
2009 MBI prize
If you used gPROMS in support of research published between 1 July 2007
and 30 June 2009, you are encouraged to submit a paper for the 2009 prize.
The research presented in the paper should make substantial use of gPROMS
modelling in order to achieve the results described. The judges will
favour novel applications or application in novel technology areas. The
prize is open to applicants from industry as well as academia.
Submissions will be judged by the panel of three leading academics in the
field of Process Systems Engineering: Professor Stratos Pistikopoulos
(Imperial College London), Professor Rafiqul Gani (Technical University of
Denmark) and Professor Michael Georgiadis (University of Western
More details on the prize, including guidelines for submission, can be
