ACM Student Research Competition (SRC)

Sponsored by ACM and Microsoft Research, the SRC is a forum for students to share research results, exchange ideas, and improve their communication skills while competing for prizes. Students accepted to participate in the SRC are entitled to a travel grant (up to $500) to help cover travel expenses. The top 3 undergraduate and graduate winners will receive the following prizes:

  • Monetary prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively.
  • A 2-year ACM membership with ACM Digital Library subscription.
  • Winners' names & abstracts will be posted on ACM's SRC web site.
  • An invitation to the SRC Grand Finals, an online competition among the winners of conference-hosted SRCs. The top three graduate and undergraduate Grand Finalists will receive an additional $500, $300, and $200, respectively. Grand Finalists and their advisors will be invited to the ACM Awards Banquet, to be recognized along with other prestigious ACM award winners, including the Turing Award Winner.
  • The SRC consists of 2 rounds: a poster session and a presentation session. A panel of judges will select a number of finalists from the poster session, who will be invited to the presentation session at ICS'13 to compete for the prizes. Evaluation will concentrate on the quality of the visual and oral presentation, research methods, and the significance of the contribution.

    Please note: For more information about the student research competition, including travel reimbursement, please see the ACM web site.
