The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by Microsoft Research, offers a unique forum for ACM student members at the undergraduate and graduate levels to present their original research at SPLASH before a panel of judges and conference attendees. The SRC gives visibility to not only up-and-coming young researchers, but also exposes them to the field of computer science research and its community. This competition also gives students an opportunity to discuss their research with experts in their field, get feedback, and to help them sharpen their communication and networking skills.
In order to participate in the SRC, you have to fulfill the following requirements:
- Current ACM student membership
- Graduate or undergraduate student status (must be currently enrolled in a university or college) at the time of submission
- If selected, participants must register for the conference
If you meet the above requirements and want to participate, you must submit an extended abstract of no more than 800 words, and no more than 2 pages (excluding references) to: https://splashsrc19.hotcrp.com/.
Submission deadline: Friday, July 12th, 2019
Your abstract should conform to the ACM SIGPLAN conference template, using the
acmart class with the
sigconf option, and it should be in 10pt font, and be submitted in PDF. The research presented in the abstract has to be done on an individual basis for graduate students, but group projects are allowed for undergraduate submissions (one student must be chosen to present the work). The abstract should describe the research problem and motivation, background and related work, the intended solution approach and its uniqueness, results, and contributions.
Your extended abstract will be judged by a panel of judges, and you will be notified if you are accepted as an SRC participant to then attend SPLASH in Greece in October. If your abstract is accepted, you will have to prepare a poster to present in the first round of competition.
Related Student Events at SPLASH
You may be interested in the SPLASH Poster session or the Doctoral Symposium. These related events are opportunities for additional feedback and suggestions on their dissertation work, contacts for further interaction, and experience in communicating with other professionals.
Note that parallel submission of the same research description to both the Doctoral Symposium and the ACM Student Research Competition is permitted. If the proposal ends up being accepted to both events, then there will only be (at most) one publication in the ACM Digital Library; the author should pick which event it corresponds to.

There are two rounds of SRC competition that are held during the SPLASH conference, once your abstract is accepted, and a later grand finals competition:
First Round (Wednesday, the 23rd)
The first round is the Poster Session. This is your opportunity to present your research in the areas specified in the conference’s call for papers. 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 a group of semi-finalists will be chosen to present at the second round of the competition.
Second Round (Thursday, the 24th)
Semi-finalists continue by giving a short presentation (a ten minute presentation followed by a five minute question and answer period) of their research before a panel of judges, with a supporting Powerpoint presentation. 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, receiving $500, $300, and $200, respectively.
The SRC Grand Finals
First place undergraduate and graduate student winners from the SRCs held during the year advance to the SRC Grand Finals. A different panel of judges evaluates these winners 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.
ACM’s SRC program covers expenses up to $500 for all students invited to an SRC. The kinds of conference expenses that are acceptable include:
- Transportation expenses (air, rail, bus, taxi, car service, car rental, parking)
- Meals, hotel, tips
- Supplies for poster development, poster shipment, etc.
- Conference registration
Students will be reimbursed once we receive their SRC Travel Expense report form along with receipts for all expenses above $25.
