Sponsored by the ACM and Microsoft Research, the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) is a forum for undergraduates and graduate students to share their research results, exchange ideas and improve their communication skills while competing for prizes. The SRC consists of two rounds: a poster session and a presentation session. Below is the list of accepted posters for the SRC poster session. A panel of judges will select a number of finalists from the poster session held at the symposium, who will be invited to a second-round SRC presentation session at MICRO 2019 and compete for the prizes. The evaluation will be concentrated on the quality of both visual and oral presentation, the research methods and the significance of contribution. You can find more information on the ACM Student Research Competition website.
