of 2015 Participations
Student Research Competition (SRC) program, sponsored by Microsoft
Research, is a newly added program to the ACM SIGAPP Symposium
on Applied Computing (SAC). The SAC 2015 SRC program provides 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ideas are invited to submit abstracts of their original unpublished
and in-progress research work in areas of experimental computing
and application development related to SAC 2015 Tracks. Please visit
SAC 2015 website.
program is open for graduate students currently enrolled in University
or College and have active ACM and SIGAPP student membership.
must be authored by students only. Faculty advisor(s) cannot be
listed as authors on the submission or on the final poster presentation.
No group projects are allowed.
are invited to submit research abstracts, of maximum 2 pages in
ACM camera-ready format, to the START submission system. Abstracts
must address original and unpublished research work related to
a SAC track, with emphasis on the innovation behind the research
idea. The submission should address the research problem being
investigated, the proposed approach and research methodology,
and sample preliminary results of the work. In addition, the abstract
should reflect on the originality of the work, innovation of the
approach, and applicability of the results to real-world problems
the same abstract to multiple SAC tracks is not allowed. The
work must not be submitted to any another SRC program, journal
or conference while it is under consideration for SAC 2015 SRC
abstracts must be submitted to their respective SAC tracks through
the START submission system. The abstracts are reviewed by reviewers
who review paper submissions to that track. The Track Chairs (TCs)
manage the review process. Upon the review results, The SRC Chair
and Program Committee select the best 15 abstracts and invite
their authors to participate in SAC 2015.
