CALL FOR PAPERS: ACM Student Research Competition Hypertext 2012

Hypertext 2012 will be participating in the ACM Student Research 
Competition sponsored by Microsoft Research.
The SRC, which is held at selected ACM conferences, will provide an 
opportunity for graduate and undergraduate
students attending Hypertext 2012 to receive a $500 travel grant from 
Microsoft Research to present their
research at Hypertext 2012. All invited students will compete in a 
conference competition for the best presentations,
with the winners eligible for a spot in the SRC Grand Finals. The SRC is 
a valuable opportunity for students to
participate in Hypertext 2012 and to receive recognition from ACM for 
the quality of their research.

The Hypertext 2012 SRC consists of two rounds: a poster session and a 
presentation session.
A panel of judges will select a number of finalists from the poster 
session, who will be invited to the presentation session.
Winners are selected from the presentation session. The top three 
undergraduate and graduate winners will receive prizes
of $500, $300, and $200, respectively.

The Hypertext 2012 SRC winners will be invited to participate in the SRC 
Grand Finals,
an online round of competitions among the winners of individual 
conference-hosted SRCs.
The winners of the Grand Finals are invited to the ACM awards banquet 
together with their advisors,
for an all-expenses-paid trip.
