Student Research Competition (SRC) at Hypertext 2008

Hypertext 2008 will be participating in theACM Student Research 
Competition ( sponsored by 
Microsoft Research.  The SRC, which is held at select ACM 
conferences, will provide an opportunity for graduate and 
undergraduate students attending Hypertext 2008 to receive a $500 
travel grant from Microsoft Research to present their research at 
Hypertext 2008.  All invited students will compete in a conference 
competition for the best presentations, with the winners eligible for 
a spot in the SRC Grand Finals.  The SRC is a valuable opportunity 
for students to participate in Hypertext 2008 and to receive 
recognition from ACM for the quality of their research.

The Hypertext 2008 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. 

The Hypertext 2008 SRC 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.
