ACM Student Research Competition Submissions


  • B Business Symposium
  • FP Full Conference Platinum
  • F Full Conference
  • S Select Conference
  • EP Exhibits Plus

To enter the ACM Student Research Competition, please submit a Poster by 10 May and check the corresponding box in the submission form. To be eligible for the ACM Student Research Competition, the submitted work must be largely the work of the submitter.

Posters selected to compete in the SRC are judged in two stages. In the first stage, a panel of distinguished judges views the SRC posters during the poster sessions and selects six semi-finalists. These semi-finalists present their work to SIGGRAPH 2018 attendees during the ACM SRC Final Presentation. At the end of the presentations, the judges announce the first-, second-, and third-place winners in the undergraduate and graduate categories. First-place undergraduate and graduate winners go on to the Student Research Competition Grand Finals.

The semi-finalists receive up to $500 in travel reimbursement from ACM. The first-place winner also receives $500, the second-place winner $300, and the third-place winner $200.
