The ACM SIGPLAN Student Research Competition

Chair: Torsten Layda, SWX Swiss Exchange, src@oopsla.acm.org

An exciting opportunity

After its remarkable success in 2002, OOPSLA is hosting once more an ACM SIGPLAN Student Research Competition. The first round of evaluation will be held jointly with the OOPSLA Posters Session. The ACM SIGPLAN Student Research Competition shares the common goal of having students meet and interact with researchers so that both sides have the opportunity to learn of ongoing, current research. The Student Research Competition has the additional goal of the student gaining experience with both formal presentations and evaluations.

Submissions will be reviewed by a committee and students will be chosen to participate in the competition. These students will discuss their work with competition judges (and conference attendees) during the regular Poster Session. The highly interactive Poster Session is used to evaluate the research on its quality, uniqueness, significance of the work, and the clarity of the presentation and the informal discussion. Three semi-finalists chosen from this round of competition will present their research during a conference session. The Student Research Competition winners will be recognized prior to the keynote speaker on the last day of the conference.
