* Students can get travel stipends and win prizes!
* Submit papers by December 10, 2010.

ICSE 2011 will host an ACM Student Research Competition (SRC),
sponsored by Microsoft Research. This competition offers undergraduate
and graduate students a unique forum to experience the research world,
present their research results to conference attendees, and compete
for prizes.

The ACM SRC at ICSE consists of three parts: research abstract
submission, poster presentation, and research talk. The winners of the
competition will be invited to participate in the ACM Student Research
Competition Grand Finals.  Participate in this exciting competition:

Submit your work to the ACM Student Research Competition at ICSE
2011. Win a travel stipend to attend the ICSE conference in Hawaii!


To participate in the competition, submit a 2-page research abstract
related to the main themes of the conference (see the Technical/
Research Track for a list of conference topics). The submission should
describe: the research problem and motivation, background and related
work, approach and uniqueness, results, and contributions. Papers will
be judged based on how well they cover these aspects of the work.

The research abstract must conform at time of submission to the ICSE
2011 Format and Submission Guidelines, and must not exceed 2 pages,
including all text, appendices, and figures. However, please note that
for this SRC, references do not count against the page limit: the list
of references may expand into a third page but no content (text,
figures) is allowed on the third page, i.e., the third page, if any,
should contain nothing except all or part of your references. All
submissions must be in English. Submissions must be in PDF format.

Papers must be submitted electronically through EasyChair by December
10, 2010. A panel of experts will review the submissions and select
the students to participate in the second round of the Student
Research Competition which will be held at ICSE 2011 in Hawaii,
USA. Accepted submissions will be published in the conference
electronic proceedings which will also be available as a printed

Students who are selected to participate in the main competition at
the ICSE conference round are entitled to a stipend for their travel
expenses, up to a maximum of US$500.



ICSE 2011 Format and Submission Guidelines:


The first round of the competition will take place in Hawaii, USA at
the ICSE conference and will be a poster session. This is your
opportunity to present your research to conference attendees and
leading experts in the software engineering fields.

Judges will review the posters and speak to participants about their
research. The judges will evaluate the research (quality, novelty, and
significance) and the presentation of the research (poster,
discussion) and select students to advance to the second round of the


Select students will continue by giving a short presentation of their
research before a panel of judges in a special session at the ICSE
2011 conference in Hawaii, USA. After each presentation, there will be
a short question and answer session.

Evaluations are based on the presenter's knowledge of his/her research
area, contribution of the research, and the quality of the oral and
visual presentation. Three winners will be chosen in each category,
undergraduate and graduate, and receive prizes.


All undergraduate and graduate student winners from the SRC held at
ICSE 2011 will advance to the SRC Grand Finals. A different panel of
judges evaluates the winners of all SRCs held during the calendar year
against each other via the web. Three undergraduates and three
graduates will be chosen as the SRC Grand Finals winners. They are
invited, along with their advisors, to the annual ACM Awards Banquet,
where they receive formal recognition.


The top three winners in each category (undergraduate and graduate)
will be recognized during the conference and will receive prizes of
US$500, US$300, and US$200, respectively. The winners of the ICSE SRC
are also invited to compete with winners from other conferences in the
ACM Student Research Competition Grand Finals.

In addition, the judges can award a special prize for the Best project
representing an innovative use of Microsoft technology (US$200). Visit
the Microsoft Research in Software Engineering Group to download
available research tools (Boogie, CCI, CHESS, Code Contracts, Pex,
Stubs) from Microsoft Research (http://research.microsoft.com/rise/ ).
Students can get selected Microsoft products such as Visual Studio and
SQL Server for free at Microsoft DreamSpark
(https://www.dreamspark.com/ ).


Participants must be undergraduate or graduate students pursuing an
academic degree at the time of initial submission. Participants must
be current student members of the ACM, and must provide their ACM
member number. Supervisors of the work may not be listed as
co-authors; you must submit a single-authored version of your work for
the competition.
