                           SRC at ICFP 2017 
                        Oxford, United Kingdom 
                         3-9 September 2017 
 
http://icfp17.sigplan.org/track/icfp-2017-Student-Research-Competition 
 
                        Co-located with the 
   International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2017) 
====================================================================== 
 
 
Student Research Competition 
---------------------------- 
 
This year ICFP will host a Student Research Competition where 
undergraduate and postgraduate students can present posters. The SRC 
at the ICFP 2017 consists of three rounds: 
 
 
* Extended abstract round: All students are encouraged to submit an 
extended abstract outlining their research (up to two pages). 
 
* Poster session at ICFP 2017: Based on the abstracts, a panel of 
judges will select the most promising entrants to participate in the 
poster session which will take place at ICFP. Students who make it to 
this round will be eligible for some travel support to attend the 
conference. In the poster session, students will have the opportunity 
to present their work to the judges, who will select three finalists 
in each category (graduate/undergraduate) to advance to the next 
round. 
 
* ICFP presentation: The last round will consist of an oral 
presentation at the ICFP to compete for the final awards in each 
category and selection of an overall winner who will advance to the 
ACM SRC Grand Finals. 
 
 
Prizes 
------ 
 
* The top three graduate and the top three undergraduate winners will 
receive prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively. 
 
* All six winners will receive award medals and a two-year 
complimentary ACM student membership, including a subscription to 
ACM’s Digital Library. 
 
* The names of the winners will be posted on the SRC web site. 
 
* The first place winners of the SRC will be invited to participate in 
the ACM SRC Grand Finals, an on-line round of competitions among the 
winners of other conference-hosted SRCs. 
 
* 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 (also known as 
the Nobel Prize of Computing). 
 
* The top three Grand Finalists will receive an additional $500, $300, 
and $200. All Grand Finalists will receive Grand Finalist 
certificates. 
 
* The ACM, Microsoft Research, and our industrial partners provide 
financial support for students attending the SRC. You can find more 
information about this on the ACM website. Eligibility The SRC is open 
to both undergraduate (not in a PhD program) and graduate students (in 
a PhD program). Upon submission, entrants must be enrolled as a 
student at their universities, and are ACM student members. 
 
Eligibility 
----------- 
 
The SRC is open to both undergraduate (not in a PhD programme) and 
graduate students (in a PhD programme). Upon submission, entrants must 
be enrolled as a student at their universities, and are ACM student 
members. 
 
Furthermore, there are some constraints on what kind of work may be 
submitted. 
 
Previously published work: 
 
Submissions should consist of original work (not yet accepted for 
publication). If the work is a continuation of previously published 
work, the submission should focus on the contribution over what has 
already been published. We encourage students to see this as an 
opportunity to get early feedback and exposure for the work they plan 
to submit to the next ICFP or POPL. 
 
Collaborative work: 
 
Students are encouraged to submit work they have been conducting in 
collaboration with others, including advisors, internship mentors, or 
other students. However, submissions are individual, so they must 
focus on the contributions of the student. 
 
Submission Details 
------------------ 
 
Each submission should include the student author's name, 
institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and postal address; 
research advisor's name; ACM student member number; category 
(undergraduate or graduate); research title; and an extended abstract 
addressing the following: 
 
* Problem and Motivation: Clearly state the problem being addressed 
 and explain the reasons for seeking a solution to this problem. 
 
* Background and Related Work: 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. 
 
* Approach and Uniqueness: Describe your approach in attacking the 
 problem and clearly state how your approach is novel. 
 
* Results and Contributions: Clearly show how the results of your work 
 contribute to computer science and explain the significance of those 
 results. 
 
The abstract must describe the student’s individual research and must 
be authored solely by the student. If the work is collaborative with 
others and/or part of a larger group project, the abstract should make 
clear what the student’s role was and should focus on that portion of 
the work. The extended abstract must not be longer than 2 pages in 
PDF. The reference list does not count towards these limits. To submit 
an abstract, please register through the EasyChair system (see the 
link above), and put all information requested above in the PDF that 
you submit including, including at least three keywords at the 
submission page. Abstracts submitted after the deadline may be 
considered at the committee’s discretion, but only after decisions 
have been made on all abstracts submitted before the deadline. If you 
have any problems or would like to clarify some concerns, don’t 
hesitate to contact the competition chair Ilya Sergey 
([log in to unmask]). 
 
Please submit your abstract at the EasyChair submission page:
