COMSOL Conference 2012 Boston—
Call for Papers

The 8th Annual Conference on Multiphysics Simulation is Now Accepting Abstracts

BURLINGTON, MA (March 15, 2012) — The Program Committee of the 8th annual COMSOL Conference today announces that it is now accepting paper and poster abstracts to be considered for presentation at the world’s largest conference on multiphysics modeling and simulation. More than 2,450 papers and posters from users of COMSOL Multiphysics software showcasing their modeling and simulation work have been presented at this annual event since its inception. The 2012 US COMSOL Conference will be held at the Boston Marriott Newton Hotel, Newton, Massachusetts, on October 3-5. Complementary COMSOL conferences meet in Milan, Italy and Bangalore, India, in October and November.

Worldwide, the COMSOL Conference connects more than 2,000 engineers and scientists from all industries, government, and academia. The Conference, which focuses on advancing cross-disciplinary modeling and simulation techniques and sharing best practices, offers attendees in-depth training sessions, panel discussions, networking events, and keynote speeches from industry leaders in addition to more than 100 user presentations. Suggested topic areas for papers and posters include, but are not limited to:

  • Acoustics & Vibrations
  • Batteries & Fuel Cells
  • Bioscience & Bioengineering
  • Chemical Reaction Engineering
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Education
  • Electrochemistry
  • Electrodynamics
  • Electromagnetics
  • Geophysics
  • Heat Transfer & Phase Change
  • Magnetohydrodynamics
  • MEMS & Piezoelectric Devices
  • Microfluidics
  • Multiphysics
  • Nanotechnology
  • Numerical Methods
  • Optics, Photonics & Plasmonics
  • Optimization
  • Particle Tracing
  • Plasma Physics
  • Porous Media Flow
  • Quantum Mechanics
  • RF & Microwaves
  • Semiconductor Devices
  • Sensors & Actuators
  • Structural Mechanics
  • Transport Phenomena

All abstract submissions will be reviewed by the 20-member Program Committee. “Each committee member has many years of successful modeling and simulation experience in research and development, product design, and/or higher education,” says Dr. Jinlan Huang, Program Committee Chairman. “It’s a great pleasure having all this simulation expertise on the Program Committee. We are looking forward to reviewing this year’s abstracts. Every year the submissions are truly amazing and we enjoy every minute reading them.”

Accepted papers will be delivered during the conference’s user presentation breakout sessions and will be published in both the conference proceedings and the COMSOL Conference CD. The Conference CD, a complimentary, unique, and widely anticipated resource, is a compendium of hundreds of fully documented multiphysics modeling and simulation projects. Inclusion in the Conference CD, which reaches approximately 150,000 engineers and scientists, offers paper and poster presenters worldwide name recognition and valuable publicity for their projects.

The Poster Session is a very popular component of the COMSOL Conference. Held on the second day of the event, the Poster Session invites conference attendees to cast their votes for the Best Poster. The winner of the Best Poster is announced during the Gala Dinner that evening. After dinner, attendees return to the Poster Session to meet with presenters and discuss their work.

Presenting a paper, a poster, or both at the COMSOL Conference is an unparalleled and prized opportunity for multiphysics users to achieve widespread name recognition within a highly skilled community of engineers and scientists from around the globe.

Prospective presenters are invited to submit their paper and poster abstracts for the Program Committee to review at Presenters submitting an abstract by June 15th receive a discount on the conference registration fee. The final submission deadline for abstracts is July 27th. For full details on the 2012 COMSOL Conference Boston, go to


COMSOL Multiphysics is a software environment for the modeling and simulation of any physics-based system. A particular strength is its ability to account for multiphysics phenomena. Optional modules add discipline-specific tools for mechanical, fluid, electromagnetics, and chemical simulations, as well as CAD interoperability.
