CFP: ACM CHI 2016 Student Research Competition

ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI)
Student Research Competition
San Jose, California, US
May 7-12, 2016

Important Dates:
•	Submission deadline: 13 January 2016 (12 noon PST)
•	Notification deadline: 29 January 2016
•	Publication-ready deadline: 5 February 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.
