ACM Student Research Competition at ICCAD 2016 (SRC@ICCAD'16)

DEADLINE: August 15, 2016
Online Submission: 
Jun 21, 2016 -- Sponsored by Microsoft Research, the ACM Student Research Competition is an internationally recognized venue enabling undergraduate and graduate students who are ACM members to:
Experience the research world -- for many undergraduates this is a first! Share research results and exchange ideas with other students, judges, and conference attendees Rub shoulders with academic and industry luminaries Understand the practical applications of their research Perfect their communication skills Receive prizes and gain recognition from ACM and the greater computing community.

The ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (ACM SIGDA) is organizing such an event in conjunction with the  International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD). Authors of accepted submissions will get travel grants from ACM/Microsoft to attend the event at ICCAD. The event consists of several rounds, as described at and , where you can also find more details on student eligibility and timeline.
Details on abstract submission:
Research projects from all areas of design automation are encouraged. The author submitting the abstract must still be a student at the time the abstract is due. Each submission should be made on  the EasyChair submission site. Please include the author's name, affiliation, postal address, and email address; research advisor's name; ACM student member number; category (undergraduate or graduate); research title; and an extended abstract (maximum 2 pages or 800 words) containing the following sections:

Problem and Motivation: This section should clearly state the problem being addressed and explain the reasons for seeking a solution to this problem. Background and Related Work: This section should describe the specialized (but pertinent) background necessary to appreciate the work. Include references to the literature where appropriate, and briefly explain where your work departs from that done by others. Reference lists do not count towards the limit on the length of the abstract. Approach and Uniqueness: This section should describe your approach in attacking the problem and should clearly state how your approach is novel. Results and Contributions: This section should clearly show how the results of your work contribute to computer science and should explain the significance of those results. Include a separate paragraph (maximum of 100 words) for possible publication in the conference proceedings that serves as a succinct description of the project. Single paper summaries (or just cut & paste versions of published papers) are inappropriate for the ACM SRC. Submissions should include at least one year worth of research contributions, but not subsuming an entire doctoral thesis load.

Note that this event is different than other ACM/SIGDA sponsored or supported events at DAC or ICCAD:  YSSP brings together seniors and 1st year graduate students at DAC,  UBooth features demos from research groups,  DASS allows graduate students to get up to speed on lectures on design automation, while the  PhD Forum showcases post-proposal PhD research at DAC and the  CADathlon allows graduate students to compete in a programming contest at ICCAD. The ACM Student Research Competition allows both graduate and undergraduate students to discuss their research with student peers, as well as academic and industry researchers, in an informal setting, while enabling them to attend DAC and compete with other ACM SRC winners from other computing areas in the ACM Grand Finals. Travel grant recipients cannot receive travel support from any other ICCAD or ACM/SIGDA sponsored program.
