Process Systems Enterprise (PSE) is pleased to announce the call for
submissions for the 2011 PSE Model-Based Innovation (MBI) prize.
PSE awards prizes totalling €5000 (EUR) for the best published papers in
which the gPROMS advanced process modelling software is used to generate
research results in a novel area of application or technology. There are
three prizes: a winner's prize of €3000 (EUR) and two runners-up prizes of
€1000 (EUR) each.
The 2010 prize was won by Ala Eldin Bouaswaig and Sebastian Engell from the
Process Dynamics and Operations Group at the Technische Universität
Dortmund, Germany, with a paper published in Chemical Engineering Science on
mathematical techniques for modelling of complex phenomena such as particle
growth in emulsion polymerisation.
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.
2011 MBI prize
If you used gPROMS in support of research published or to be published
between 1 July 2009 and 30 June 2011, you are encouraged to submit a paper
for the 2011 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
All you need to do to be eligible for the prize is fill in the submission
form at http://www.psenterprise.com/academic/mbi_prize/form_mbi_prize.html
and send a copy of the published paper. You do not need to provide the full
paper and publication details until the deadline, 15 July 2011.
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 Macedonia,
Greece). The prize will be awarded at the 2011 AIChE Annual Meeting in
More details on the prize, including guidelines for submission, can be found
