Sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery and Microsoft Research, the Student Research Competition is a forum for undergraduates and graduate students to share their research results, exchange ideas, and improve their communication skills while competing for prizes. Students accepted to participate in the SRC were entitled to a travel grant (up to $500) to help cover travel expenses. (October 2011)
