SRCPLDI 2016 Student Research Competition

ACM and Microsoft Research are sponsoring the Student Research Competition (SRC) at the ACM SIGPLAN 2016 Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI 2016).

The SRC provides an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students attending PLDI 2016 to present their research work in the area of programming language design and implementation. The goal is to give students a forum to discuss their research with experts in their field and to help them sharpen their research and communication skills. 

The SRC consists of three rounds:

Each submission should include the student author’s name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and postal address; research advisor’s name; ACM student member number; category (undergraduate or graduate); research title; and an extended abstract addressing the following:

Submissions must be original research that is not already published at PLDI or another conference or journal. One of the goals of the SRC is to give students feedback on ongoing, unpublished work. Furthermore, the abstract must be authored solely by the student. If the work is collaborative with others and/or part of a larger group project, the abstract should make clear what the student’s role was and should focus on that portion of the work.

The extended abstract must not exceed 1000 words and must not be longer than 2 pages. Reference lists do not count towards these limits.
