Sponsored by Microsoft Research, the ACM Student Research Competition is an internationally recognized venue enabling undergraduate and graduate students who are ACM members to:
The ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation is organizing such an event in conjunction with the Design Automation Conference. Authors of accepted submissions will get travel grants from ACM/Microsoft to attend the event at DAC. The event consists of several rounds, as described at http://www.acm.org/src/participate.html and http://www.acm.org/src/about.html , where you can also find more details on student eligibility and timeline.
Details on abstract submission:
Research projects from all areas of design automation are encouraged. The author submitting the abstract must still be a student at the time the abstract is due. Each submission should be made on the EasyChair submission site. Please include the author's name, affiliation, postal address, and email address; research advisor's name; ACM student member number; category (undergraduate or graduate); research title; and an extended abstract (maximum 2 pages or 800 words) containing the following sections:
Note that this event is different than other ACM/SIGDA sponsored or supported events at DAC or ICCAD: YSSP brings together seniors and 1st year graduate students at DAC, UBooth features demos from research groups, DASS allows graduate students to get up to speed on lectures on design automation, while the PhD Forum showcases post-proposal PhD research at DAC and the CADathlon allows graduate students to compete in a programming contest at ICCAD. The ACM Student Research Competition allows both graduate and undergraduate students to discuss their research with student peers, as well as academic and industry researchers, in an informal setting, while enabling them to attend DAC and compete with other ACM SRC winners from other computing areas in the ACM Grand Finals. Travel grant recipients cannot receive travel support from any other DAC or ACM/SIGDA sponsored program.
