अन्तर्राष्ट्रीय सिमुलेशन प्रतिस्पर्धा or International Simulation Olympiad (ISimO) is an online global olympiad to promote and celebrate the excellent computational (simulation) engineering happening in academia around the world, using open-source software. ISimO, organized by Paanduv Applications, invites all students (bachelor level, master level, or PhDs) to register for the event on an individual basis or in teams. Applicants can be full-time registered students at any academic institute.

Because computational engineering is applicable to a wide range of industries, applicants can select one from a list of problem statements. Broadly, the problems will be categorized into three categories: Multiphase flows, Aerodynamics, and Thermal Engineering. Students from mechanical, aerospace, thermal sciences, civil, chemical, electrical, electronics, materials, applied mechanics, mathematics, physics, chemistry, ocean, material science, additive manufacturing, health sciences, mining, and other backgrounds are welcome to register. The difficulty level of each problem will be intermediate level, will involve the validation of experimental data using computational modeling, and will be evaluated based on many or all of the 8-point evaluation criteria described below. The panel of judges will include computational engineering experts.

Winner Announcement 2024

It has been three years since Paanduv Applications was established. In order to introduce computational modeling deep into academia and promote reliance on Open-Source software, in 2022, we launched the International Simulation Olympiad. This spectacular global event brought together talented individuals from around the world. This event showcased the extraordinary skills of our participants.

We announce the winners of this event on our founding day i.e. August 26. We officially announced the winners of the first International Simulation Olympiad 2022-23, Team Rogue Simulators Cranfield University, and Team JSV Trio from IIT Bhubaneswar.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to every participant and supporter for making this event a grand success. Your enthusiasm and commitment have added immense value for us to conduct this event every year.

As we embark on the journey ahead, we remain steadfast in our dedication to deliver cutting-edge solutions, and unparalleled services, fostering an environment that encourages innovation and growth. The next chapter of Paanduv promises to be even more remarkable, and we invite you to join us in shaping a future that knows no limits.

The winner of the ISimO 2023-24 will be declared on Aug 26, 2024.

In addition to the ISimO certificate, a total prize amount of USD 1500 (up to INR 125000) will be shared between the top three teams.

Please read the ISimO guidelines and evaluation criteria before registering for the event.
