PIConGPU is a year-long, scientific project with many people contributing to it. In order to credit the work of others, we expect you to cite our latest paper describing PIConGPU when publishing and/or presenting scientific results.

In addition to that and out of good scientific practice, you should document the version of PIConGPU that was used and any modifications you applied. A list of releases alongside a DOI to reference it can be found here:
