After its remarkable success in previous years, OOPSLA is again hosting an ACM SIGPLAN Student Research Competition (sponsored by Microsoft Research); see ACM's description for details. The first round of evaluation will be held jointly with the OOPSLA Poster Session. The ACM SIGPLAN Student Research Competition shares the Posters session's goal of facilitating interaction among researchers and attendees, to provide both sides with the opportunity to learn of ongoing, current research. Additionally, the Student Research Competition affords students with experience with both formal presentations and evaluations.
Monday night, the SRC posters will be available during the poster session. Tuesday, the second round of competition will be held at 10:30 in R512C. In the second round of competition, the students will give a 10-minute presentation about their work, followed by a 5-minute Q&A. The winners of the SRC will be announced on Thursday before the main keynote.
