ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research spanning
computer architecture and hardware, programming languages and compilers,
operating systems and networking, as well as applications and user
interfaces. The 2015 conference will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, a city
where two continents meet on the blue waters of the Bosphorus to offer an
abundance of unique natural, historical, cultural, and culinary


The 20th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming
Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS) invites participation in the ACM
Student Research Competition (SRC). Sponsored by ACM and Microsoft
Research, the SRC is a forum for undergraduates and graduate students to
share their research results, exchange ideas, and improve their
communication skills while competing for prizes. †Students accepted to
participate in the SRC are entitled to a travel grant (up to $500) to help
cover travel expenses. The top 3 undergraduate and graduate winners will
receive all of the following prizes:

1. Monetary prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively.

2. An award medal (gold, silver or bronze) and a two-year complimentary ACM
membership with a subscription to ACM's Digital Library.

3. The names of the winners and their placement will be posted on the ACM
SRC web site.

4. In addition, the first place winner in each category (undergraduate,
graduate) will receive an invitation to participate in the SRC Grand
Finals, an on-line round of competitions among the first place winners of
individual conference-hosted SRCs. The top three graduate and undergraduate
Grand Finalists will receive an additional $500, $300, and $200,
respectively, along with Grand Finalist medals (gold, silver, bronze).
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.

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 presentation session at ASPLOS
2015 and compete for the prizes. The evaluation will be concentrated on the
quality of both visual and oral presentation, the research methods, and the
significance of contribution. You can find more information on the ACM
Student Research Competition site (http://src.acm.org/).

A participant in the SRC must meet all following conditions:

* The participant must submit an up to 800-word abstract outlining the
content of a poster that is going to be presented during the competition.

* The abstract must include the poster title, author names, affiliations,
and the name of the academic advisor.

* It should describe the research problem, motivation and background,
techniques and results, and the prospect for clearly and concisely
conveying the work in a poster format.

* It should state the novelty and contributions of the work explicitly.

* The submission deadline is November 14th, 2014 at 23:59 CST.

* The abstract must have not appeared before. Novelty is one of the
criteria for selection.

* The abstract and the poster must be authored solely by the participant.

* The participant can be from anywhere in the world, but must be an ACM
student member, and must maintain an undergraduate or graduate student
status as of November 14, 2014.

* In your submission, please indicate whether you are an undergraduate or a
graduate student.

* You may join ACM prior to entering. Basic student membership is $19 per
year or less www.acm.org/membership.

For each accepted SRC poster, a one-page extended abstract in the ACM
format will be included in the ASPLOS 2015 conference proceedings. The
content, however, can be included in a future submission to other
conferences or journals.

For questions regarding the submission process, or for additional
information, clarifications, or questions, please contact the ACM Student
Research Competition Co-chairs, Eren Kursun (erenkursun at gmail.com) and
Gurhan Kucuk (gkucuk at cse.yeditepe.edu.tr).

The ACM Student Research Competition at ASPLOS 2015 is sponsored by the ACM
and Microsoft Research.
