## About the SRC

PACT 2023 invites students to participate in the ACM Student Research

Competition (SRC).

The SRC is a forum for graduate and undergraduate students to share

their research results, exchange ideas, and improve their communication

skills while competing for prizes.

The SRC consists of three rounds:

1.  **Online abstract submission** authored by the student alone

2.  **Poster session at PACT 2023** by authors for abstracts accepted by

the selection committee

3.  **Presentation at PACT 2023** by authors of the top poster presenters

selected by judges at the conference

All rounds will consider the significance of the research contributions

and research methods.

The poster sessions and finalist presentations will also consider the

quality of both visual and oral presentation.

All authors of accepted abstracts will receive

**discounted conference registration** to help offset costs of


**Students must attend PACT 2023 in person** to take part in the poster

session and finalist presentation.

Further student grants may be announced by the conference, and we

encourage all authors of accepted abstracts to apply for those in

addition to the registration discount.

Students will be expected to print and bring their own posters to the


You can find more information about the SRC on the

[ACM SRC website](https://src.acm.org/).

## Prizes

The top 3 undergraduate and graduate winners will be recognized in the

following ways:

- They will receive monetary prizes of $500, $300, and $200,


- They will receive a framed grand finalist certificate.

- Their names will be posted on the PACT 2023 website.

The first-place winner in each category (undergraduate, graduate) will

also 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.

  must be submitted electronically at the [SRC submission

  no later than August 17, 2023 (AoE).

- **Submissions should not exceed 1 page, and should not exceed 800 words.**

  Figures and references are allowed, but must fit within the single

  page. References do not count toward the 800-word limit.

- The submission should be in PDF format.

- Blind submissions are fine, but are not required.

- The submission must meet all eligibility requirements below.

- While not required, we recommend that you use the

- The abstract must include

- Poster title

- Author name(s) and student status (undergrad/graduate)

- Affiliation(s),

- The name of the research advisor(s).

- The abstract should describe the research problem, motivation and

  background, techniques (and their novelty), and results.

- All students whose abstracts are accepted are expected to attend

  PACT 2023 and present a poster of their work, as well as present it in

  a PACT session if selected from the poster session as a finalist.

### Eligibility

- Undergraduate students may submit team projects.

  However, only the first author will be eligible for the registration

  discount and to win prizes.

- Graduate students are required to submit alone.

  If a graduate student is submitting work that is part of a group

  research project, they may only present their portion of the research.

- If the research results have already appeared in a publication, prior

  to the SRC submission date, then they are not permitted to be submitted

  to an SRC for consideration.

  Furthermore, the same work may not be presented at an SRC and in

  another session at PACT 2023.

- The abstract and the poster must be authored by the participant.

- The participant can be from anywhere in the world, but must:

- Be an ACM student member (you can join prior to entering;

  [basic student membership is US $19 per year or

- Maintain an undergraduate or graduate student status as of the

  submission deadline.

- SRC allows parallel submissions of full papers in other conferences,

  as long as they abide by self-plagiarism rules (e.g., at least 30% of

  both the SRC abstract and the other publication is unique).

  That is, any other submission needs to be a minimum of 30% different

  than this SRC submission.

- The content of your SRC submission can be included in a future

  submission to other conferences or journals (as their rules permit).
