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.
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.
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
Washington University in St. Louis
