Types are definitely one area of interest for PLDI 2008 and its
Student Research Competition.  See the Call for Submissions below for
more information.



June 7-13, 2008
Tucson, Arizona

ACM and Microsoft Research are sponsoring a Student Research
Competition (SRC) at PLDI 2008.

The SRC provides an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate
students attending PLDI 2008 to present their research in the design
and implementation of programming languages. The SRC consists of two
rounds: a poster session and a presentation session. A panel of judges
will select a number of finalists from the poster session, who will be
invited to the presentation session. Winners are selected from the
presentation session. The top three graduate and undergraduate winners
will receive cash awards. Click here for more details.

The winners will be invited to participate in the SRC Grand Finals, an
online round of competitions among the winners of individual
conference-hosted SRCs. The winners of the Grand Finals are invited to
the ACM awards banquet together with their advisors, for an
all-expenses-paid trip.

SRC participants will be eligible for travel grants.


Eligibility Requirements
Current ACM student membership
Current "student" status as of March 15, 2008, either graduate or undergraduate

Students who wish to participate must submit the following information:
