Conference Exhibition Call For Participation Presenters Media Registration



Students submitting posters to the SIGGRAPH 2005 Posters program can opt to have their posters entered in ACM's Student Research Competition. Twenty-five students will be selected to compete at the conference itself. The selected students will receive partial financial support from ACM to cover part of their travel costs to the conference.

Student Research Competition at the Conference

On Sunday, 31 July, each of the 25 selected students will give a short presentation to the Student Research Competition jury, during a walkthrough of the posters. The jury will then select a small number of students to give a second talk about their research later in the week. The finalists from the second phase of the competition will continue on to ACM's Grand Finals.

To Participate

The Student Research Competition is open to graduate and undergraduate students whose posters are accepted by the Posters program. To be considered, students must submit a poster and indicate that they would like to participate in the Student Research Competition (only one student per poster). Students must be members of ACM to compete.

Upon Acceptance

Competitors in the Student Research Competition will receive modest support for conference travel. Competitors should come to the conference prepared to give a brief presentation on Sunday, 31 July and, if selected for further competition, to give a short talk about their research project later in the week.
