> Important Dates:
> Submission deadline: 13 January 2016 (12 noon PST)
> Notification deadline: 29 January 2016

> The Student Research Competition (SRC) is a forum for undergraduate 
> and graduate students to showcase their research, exchange ideas, and 
> improve their communication skills while competing for prizes at CHI 
> 2016. The CHI SRC competition is a branch of the ACM Student 
> Research Competition < <>> which hosts similar
> competitions at other ACM conferences.
> The Student Research Competition has the following goals:
> to give undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to  share their research ideas and results at CHI in a special forum that provides visibility for their work
> to give students the opportunity to meet with and interact with CHI attendees to share ideas, gain new insights, and understand possible practical applications
> to give students an opportunity to sharpen their communication skills
> to provide detailed feedback to students about their research and presentation, from a panel of distinguished judges from industry and academia
> to recognize and reward outstanding student research
> Participants must be students pursuing an academic degree at the time 
> of initial submission. The contest has two categories, one for 
> undergraduate research and the other for graduate research. Three 
> winners will be selected in each category. Research completed while the 
> student was an undergraduate may be submitted to the undergraduate 
> category even if the student is now a first-year graduate student.
> Each competition entry must be authored by one student only - neither 
> supervisors or other students are allowed as co-authors.
> For work accepted to the CHI 2016 Student Research Competition, a 
> travel grant of up to US $500 will be awarded to help cover travel 
> expenses to the conference. While the student must be an ACM member 
> to qualify for travel funding and awards, she/he does not need to be one 
> to submit to the competition.
> The top three winners at CHI 2016 in each category (undergraduate and 
> graduate) will receive prizes of US $500, US $300, and US $200, 
> respectively. All winners will receive a medal and two-year 
> complimentary ACM membership with a subscription to ACM's Digital
> Library. Winners will be recognized during the closing plenary session of 
> the CHI 2016 conference. The first-place winners will also go on to 
> compete in the ACM grand finals 
> < <>> with winners from 
> other ACM conferences.
