With this award, the SC SimTech commemorates Stuttgart-based Professor John Argyris, one of the most decorated experts and innovative thinkers in the field of simulation science, and honours internationally renowned scientists and academics, both domestic and foreign, with groundbreaking accomplishments in simulation science.
The holder of the Argyris Visiting Professorship at the SC SimTech in Stuttgart is invited to spend a period of up to three months on a research stay at the University of Stuttgart. In addition, a public "Argyris Lecture" offers the visiting professor the opportunity to present his or her own scientific work to a broad audience.
Nominations of eligible candidates for the Argyris Visiting Professorship can be submitted until February 28, 2022. Nominations may be submitted by scientists and academics who are currently employed at a university or non-university research institution in Germany or abroad.
In addition to a nomination letter (max. one page), the nomination documents should also include a curriculum vitae and a list of scientific publications of the proposed scientist.
The selection committee is composed of experts from different areas of simulation science as well as members of the SC SimTech Board of Directors and Scientific Advisory Board. The most important criteria for the evaluation of the proposals are personal excellence, scientific relevance and originality of the work as well as its relation to topics of the SC SimTech.
The funded stay is scheduled to take place in 2022. The SC SimTech will cover the costs incurred during the stay.
