ACM Student Research Competition (SRC)
52nd Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO)

Important Dates
Abstract Submission: July 31, 2019 (4:59pm PDT)
Acceptance Notification: August 21, 2019

The 52nd International Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO) 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
the following prizes:
1. Monetary prizes of $500, $300 and $200, respectively.
2. A framed Grand Finalist certificate.
3. The names of the winners will be posted on the website.
4. In addition, the first-place winner in each category
(undergraduate, graduate) will receive
an invitation to participate in the SRC Grand Finals, an online round
of competitions
among the first-place winners of individual conference-hosted SRCs. Three
undergraduates and three graduates will be chosen among them as the
SRC Grand Finals
winners. They are invited, along with their advisors, to the annual ACM Awards
Banquet, where they receive formal recognition.

The SRC consists of two rounds: a poster session and a presentation
session. Submissions
recommended for acceptance by the selection committee will be invited
to a first-round poster
session to be held during MICRO-52. A panel of judges will select a
number of finalists from the poster session held at the symposium, who
will be invited to a second-round SRC presentation
session at MICRO-52 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 info on the ACM Student Research
Competition website:
