‹Programming› 2018
Mon 9 - Thu 12 April 2018 Nice, France

The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by Microsoft Research, offers a unique forum for ACM student members at the undergraduate and graduate levels to present their original research at <Programming> before a panel of judges and conference attendees. The competition gives students an opportunity to discuss their research with experts in their field, to get feedback, and to help sharpen their communication and networking skills. Finally, the SRC not only provides visibility to up-and-coming young researchers, but also exposes them to the field of computer science research and its community.

Call for Student Research Competition

In order to participate in the SRC, you have to fulfill the following requirements:

  • Current ACM student membership
  • Graduate or undergraduate student status (must be currently enrolled in a university or college) at the time of submission
  • If selected, participants must register for the conference

If you meet the above requirements and want to participate, you must submit an extended abstract of no more than 800 words, and no more than 2 pages (excluding references).

Submission deadline: Mon 22 January 2018

Your abstract should conform to the ACM SIGPLAN conference template, using the acmart class with the “sigconf” option, and it should be in 10pt font, and be submitted in PDF format. The research presented in the abstract has to be done on an individual basis for graduate students, but group projects are allowed for undergraduate submissions (one student must be chosen to present the work). The abstract should describe the research problem and motivation, background and related work, the intended solution approach and its uniqueness, results, and contributions.

Your extended abstract will be judged by a panel of judges, and you will be notified if you are accepted as an SRC participant to then attend in Nice, France, in April 2018. If your abstract is accepted, you will have to prepare a poster to present in the first round of competition.
