 CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
 PLDI 2008 STUDENT RESEARCH COMPETITION

 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.
