In Track I: DEVS Theory and Methodology
The following two researchers were awarded a plaque and $5,500 check each.
Professor Gabriel A. Wainer at Carleton University, Canada for his work on the Cell-DEVS formalism and CD++.
Professor Hessam Sarjoughian at Arizona State University, USA for his research work in component-based simulation models.

In Track II: Commercial DEVS Application
Professor Tag Gon Kim, Chang Ho Sung, and et al. at KAIST, South Korea for their work on DEVSim++ Tools Set: DEVS-based M&S Tools Set for Military Applicationswere awarded a plaque and $5,000 check.
Competition details for the Second Annual DEVS Award will be announced in September, 2010.

In recognition of the 40th anniversary of the DEVS M&S framework which was invented by Prof. Bernard P. Zeigler, this DEVS M&S Award is sponsored by RTSync Corp. The award recognizes high-impact innovations in modeling and simulation methods, applications, and tools. The Award promotes advances in all facets of the DEVS that lead to novel solutions for commercial and governmental use.
