* POPL 2017 Student Research Competition : Call for Submissions *

POPL 2017 will host a Student Research Competition where undergraduate
and graduate students can present posters. The SRC will consist of
three rounds:

1) Extended abstract round: All students are encouraged to submit an
extended abstract outlining their research (800 words).

2) Poster session at POPL 2017: Based on the abstracts, a panel of
judges will select the most promising entrants to participate in the
poster session which will take place at POPL. Students who make it to
this round will be eligible for some travel support to attend the
conference. In the poster session, students will have the opportunity
to present their work to the judges, who will select three finalists
in each category (graduate/undergraduate) to advance to the next
round. (You will be responsible for transporting your poster to the
conference. If this will be a problem, please contact the chair of the
SRC at <kn at lri.fr>.)

3) The presentation: The last round will consist of an oral
presentation at POPL to compete for the final awards in each category
and selection of an overall winner who will advance to the ACM SRC
Grand Finals.

4) Prizes

The top three graduate and the top three undergraduate winners will
receive prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively.  All six winners
will receive award medals and a one-year complimentary ACM student
membership, including a subscription to ACM’s Digital Library.  The
names of the winners will be posted on the SRC web site.  The first
place winners of the SRC will be invited to participate in the ACM SRC
Grand Finals, an on-line round of competitions among the winners of
other conference-hosted SRCs.  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 (also known as the Nobel Prize of Computing).  The top
three Grand Finalists will receive an additional $500, $300, and
$200. All Grand Finalists will receive Grand Finalist certificates.

The ACM, Microsoft Research, and our industrial partners provide
financial support for students attending the SRC. You can find more
information about this on the ACM website.
