Interested in sharing your research and networking with a larger audience? Why not submit your poster for consideration at this conference?


Tapia Student Poster Competition

The research poster session provides an opportunity for students to present their latest research results and methodologies to a wide conference audience and to network with peers and experts in their research area. Posters are appropriate for work in progress, preliminary results, and late-breaking research results. If your poster submission is accepted, it will be displayed for a 2-hour time period on Thursday, September 20, 2018. At least one student author for each accepted poster must register to attend the conference and be designated to present the poster during the 2-hour session. During this time, a panel of judges will score the posters. We will recognize posters during the conference banquet for two separate categories—1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for undergraduate students and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for graduate students. An attendee may present only one poster. Posters must represent original work and cannot be previously published in another venue.

ACM Student Research Competition (SRC)

In addition to For the first time, on top of the poster program, Tapia 20187 will host an ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by Microsoft Research. The ACM SRC consists of two phases: (1) poster presentation (being part of the traditional research poster session), and (2) research talk. In Phase 2, selected students will give a short presentation of their research before a panel of judges in a special session at Tapia 20187. Up to three winners will be chosen in each category, undergraduate and graduate, and receive prizes (note that these prizes are separate from the above poster winner prizes, and an SRC poster is also eligible for a poster winner prize). The winners of the competition will be invited to participate in the ACM Student Research Competition Grand Finals.
