The Student Research Competition (SRC) program, sponsored by Microsoft Research, is a newly added to SAC. The SAC 2013 SRC program is designed to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with researchers and practitioners in their areas of interest. Active graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on their research ideas are invited to submit abstracts of their original un-published and in-progress research work in areas of experimental computing and application development related to SAC 2013 Tracks.

This program is open for student authors currently enrolled in University or College and have active ACM (or SIGAPP) student membership. Participation requires conference registration at the student rate ($175), using the registration type "SRC Student Author".

A judging panel (committee) will evaluate the poster displays and then the oral (Power Point) presentations (during 2 rounds of judging:

Round #1: Judging all displayed posters (all accepted abstracts) to pick the top 5 posters (abstracts).

Round #2: Judging the five presentations to select the top three winners for cash prizes. All 5 presenters will be given tickets to attend the banquet where the finalists will be announced.

At the Banquet (on Thursday), the top three winners will be recognized and presented with award medals and certificates. The cash prizes (paid directly by ACM after the conference) are $500, $300, and $200.
