Student Research Competition (SRC) program, sponsored by Microsoft
Research, was added to the ACM SIGAPP Symposium on Applied Computing

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ideas are invited to submit abstracts of their original unpublished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 2017 Tracks.

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must address original and unpublished research work related to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
