CALL FOR POSTERS AND STUDENT RESEARCH COMPETITION
Welcome to the PLDI 2009 Posters and
Student Research Competition Home Page
ACM and Microsoft Research are sponsoring the Student Research Competition (SRC) at the
ACM SIGPLAN 2009 Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI 2009).
The SRC provides an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students attending PLDI 2009 to present their research work in the area of programming language design and implementation.
The SRC consists of two 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
SRC participants will be eligible for PLDI 2009 travel grants.
Undergraduate and graduate SRC participants have opportunities to meet with researchers in their fields of interest, making important connections and gaining significant insights into their work. The SRC poster and presentation sessions are open to all conference attendees.
All SRC participants have an exceptional opportunity to sharpen their research and communications skills in preparation for their SRC experience; these visual, organizational, and presentation skills will be of great value throughout one’s academic and working careers.
The winners are selected from the presentation session. They will enjoy the following benefits:
- The top three undergraduate and graduate winners will receive monetary prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively.
- They will also receive an award plaque and a two-year complimentary ACM membership with a subscription to ACM’s Digital Library.
- The names and research abstracts of the winners will be posted on the SRC Web site.
- The winners will be invited to participate in the SRC Grand Finals, an on-line round of competitions among the winners of individual conference-hosted SRCs.
- The top three graduate and undergraduate Grand Finalists will receive an additional $500, $300, and $200, respectively, and Grand Finalist plaques.
- 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).
