The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by Microsoft 
Research, offers a unique forum for undergraduate and graduate students 
to present their original research on programming language design, 
implementation, theory, applications, and performance at PLDI 2017.  The 
goal is to give students a place to discuss their research with experts 
in their field and to help them sharpen their research and communication 

Please find more information at 

Deadline for submission of the extended abstracts: Friday April 7th,

## Rounds

Three rounds of competition will take place before and during PLDI 
2017.  All rounds are held in two categories: Undergraduate Students and 
Graduate Students (Masters and PhD level).  Winners of the third round 
will be invited to participate in the SRC Grand Finals competition 
hosted by the ACM.  The PLDI rounds are:
* Extended abstract round. All students are encouraged to submit an 
extended abstract outlining their research.
* Poster session. Based on the abstracts, a panel of judges will select 
the most promising authors to participate in the poster session which 
will take place at PLDI. In the poster session, students will have the 
opportunity to present their work to the judges, who will select a group 
of semi-finalists in each category to advance to the next round.
* PLDI presentation. The last PLDI round will consist of an oral 
presentation at the conference to compete for the three top places.

## Prizes

Winners of the three top places in each category receive prizes of $500 
for the first place winner, $300 for the second place winner and $200
