Abstract submission: 11:59 pm US EDT Friday, June 17, 2016 Acceptance notification: 11:59 pm US EDT Friday, July 15, 2016 Poster Session for Accepted Abstracts: TBD Presentations for Finalists: TBD
Submissions to the PACT-2016 ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) must be submitted electronically at this site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=acmsrcatpact2016
The submission should be in pdf format. Blind submissions are fine, but not required. Submissions should not exceed 1 page, and should not exceed 800 words. Figures and References are fine, and must fit within the single page. You may use this latex template. This template will format the paper in the style here.
Please also note that all students whose abstracts are accepted are expected to attend PACT-2016 and present a poster of their work, and present it in a PACT session if selected from the poster session.
Sponsored by ACM and Microsoft Research, the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) is a forum for graduate and undergraduate students to share their research results, exchange ideas, and improve their communication skills while competing for prizes.
The SRC consists of three rounds:
- Online abstract submission authored by the student alone.
- Poster session at PACT-2016 by authors selected abstracts.
- Presentation at PACT-2016 by authors of the top 3 posters selected by judges at the conference.
The evaluation of round (1) will focus on the quality of the research contributions, while rounds (2) and (3) will consider that and the quality of visual and oral presentation.
You can find more information on the ACM Student Research Competition at: http://src.acm.org
Students accepted to participate in the SRC may be eligible for partial travel grants (typically up to $500) to help cover travel expenses. The top 3 undergraduate and graduate winners will receive all of the following prizes:
- Monetary prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively.
- An award medal and a one-year complimentary ACM membership with a subscription to ACM's Digital Library.
- The names and research abstracts of the winners will be posted on the ACM SRC web site.
- An invitation to participate in the SRC Grand Finals, an on-line round of competitions among the winners of individual conference-hosted SRCs. The top three graduate and undergraduate Grand Finalists will receive an additional $500, $300, and $200, respectively, along with Grand Finalist plaques. Grand Finalists and their advisors will be invited to the Annual ACM Awards Banquet for an all-expenses-paid trip, where they will be recognized for their accomplishments, along with other prestigious ACM award winners, including the winner of the Turing Award, the $1 million "Nobel Prize" of computing.
A participant in the SRC must meet all of the following conditions:
- The abstract and the poster must be authored solely by the participant.
- The participant must submit an abstract of up to 800 words outlining the content of a poster that is going to be presented during the competition. The abstract must include the poster title, author name, affiliation, and the name of the academic advisor. It should describe the research problem, motivation and background, techniques and results, and the prospect for clearly and concisely conveying the work in a poster format. It should state the novelty and contributions of the work explicitly. The submission deadline is Friday June 17, 2016, at 11:59 pm US Eastern Time.
- The abstract can have some overlap with previous publications (including PACT-2016), but some significant part of it must have not appeared before. Novelty is one of the criteria for selection.
- The participant can be from anywhere in the world, but must be an ACM student member, and must maintain an undergraduate or graduate student status as of June 17, 2016. Please indicate whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student. You may join ACM prior to entering. Basic student membership is $19 per year or less: http://www.acm.org/membership
For each accepted SRC poster, a one-page extended abstract in the ACM format will be included in the PACT-2016 conference proceedings. The content, however, can be included in a future submission to other conferences or journals.
