Beverly Hills, CA — The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences today announced 10 winners of Scientific and Technical Academy Awards, which will be presented at The Beverly Wilshire on Saturday, February 9, 2008. Unlike other Academy Awards, achievements receiving Scientific and Technical Awards need not have been developed and introduced during 2007. Rather, the achievements must demonstrate a proven record of contributing significant value to the process of making motion pictures.In addition, three Scientific and Technical Special Award recipients will be recognized at the black-tie awards dinner: David A. Grafton, who will receive the Gordon E. Sawyer Award; David S. Inglish, the John A. Bonner Award; and Jonathan Erland, the Award of Commendation. 

Scientific and Engineering Awards (Academy Plaque):To Dr. Doug Roble, Nafees Bin Zafar and Ryo Sakaguchi for the development of the fluid simulation system at Digital Domain.This influential and flexible production-proven system incorporates innovative algorithms and refined adaptations of published methods to achieve large-scale water effects. 

To Nick Rasmussen, Ron Fedkiw and Frank Losasso Petterson for the development of the Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) fluid simulation system.This production-proven simulation system achieves large-scale water effects within ILM’s Zeno framework. It includes integrating particle level sets, parallel computation, and tools that enable the artistic direction of the results.

In an interview with philly. com honoree Nafees Bin Zafar said earnestly,”Fluid effects rock and all of us who work in fluids know this.” 

The blogger Promethean Dreamer wrote a few things about Nafees. 

Nafees is a software engineering graduate from the College of Charleston with many professional credentials and recognition in his area of expertise. Nafees Bin Zafar is the son of Zafar Bin Bashar, a Partner at Marcum & Kliegman, and Nafeesa Zafar who reside in Long Island, New York. He is the nephew of Ekushay Padak recipient SmritiSoudha Architect Syed Mainul Hossain and a grand nephew of Mostafa Monowar.

Nafees speaks: I came in this field for the sake of my personal interest and my education in computer science helped me to acquire the skills in generating illusions by stimulating images of water, butterfly and smokes.”

We, the E-Bangladesh team, congratulate him from the core of our hearts for flourishing Bangladesh in the World.

    It fills the heart of a proud Aunt to see her little ‘Babu’ grown into this young man with this big achievement! His mother in the picture with him is my first cousin, another granddaughter of Poet Golam Mustafa. As Nafees would say, I too ask for everyone’s ‘doa’ and good wishes for his continuing success and my beloved family whose members have all striven to contribute something for the community of the world.

    বাংলার গৌরব
    ছড়ালে সৌরভ।
    বিশ্বকে মাথালে
    সরব সেরা হলে।
    পূরসকার তার অসকার
    নাফিজ মোদের অহংকার।
