SRCPLDI 2011 Student Research Competition

ACM and Microsoft Research are sponsoring the Student Research Competition (SRC) at the ACM SIGPLAN 2011 Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI 2011).

The SRC provides an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students attending PLDI 2011 to present their research work in the area of programming language design and implementation. The goal is to give students a forum to discuss their research with experts in their field, and to help them sharpen their research and communication skills.
