AMSTERDAM, August 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

CodeForScience Singapore is the third competition in 2012 in a global series to develop applications for science research

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has launched its third global CodeForScience (CFS) competition in collaboration with The National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore Management University (SMU). CodeForScience is a global series of application development competitions for scientists, researchers and developers.

CFS Singapore is a four-week online application development competition. Participants have the opportunity to compete for first, second, and third place prizes, each requiring unique thinking, programming, and design skill sets. Another award, sponsored by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (iDA), grants a prize for the application that makes the best use of government data.

"Science is about the dissemination and integration of discoveries, to build upon foundations of previous work," said Kan Min-Yen, Associate Professor of Computer Science at the National University of Singapore. "As the next wave of research innovation is accelerated by technology and digital libraries, Elsevier's CodeForScience gives students and faculty the opportunity to participate in building and improving upon the future of research."

"As part of Elsevier's goal to increase collaboration with academic institutions and the science communities around the world, we are happy to join together with Singapore's research community in CodeForScience," said Vishal Gupta, Director, Developer Network at Elsevier. "Previous CFS competitions were held in Turkey and India. CFS is essential to our ongoing efforts to develop solutions by researchers for researchers to solve scientific discovery challenges and encourage global research productivity."

Submitted entries will be evaluated based on novelty, usability and value-add to researchers in specific domains or to the general research workflow. Submissions will be judged by a panel of experts from NUS, SMU, NTU and iDA, and Elsevier.

The CodeForScience developer competition runs from August 27 through September 24, 2012.  Winning applications will be announced at the CFS Talk & Awards event on September 29, 2012 at NUS, Singapore.
