ACM Student Research Competition (sponsored by Microsoft Research) at the
14th International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers and Accessibility
Oct 22, 2012 - Oct 24, 2012
Boulder, Colorado, USA

The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) is an event open to undergraduate and graduate students, interested in presenting their research to a panel of experts. Students wishing to participate submit abstracts of their work. Qualifying research must deal with topics that are relevant to the mission of the ASSETS series, as described by the call-for-papers<http://www.sigaccess.org/assets12/cfp.html>. This includes the use of technology by and in support of:

  Individuals with hearing, sight and other sensory impairments
  Individuals with motor impairments
  Individuals with memory, learning and cognitive impairments
  Individuals with multiple impairments
  Older adults with diverse capabilities
  Professionals who work with these populations

Submissions should present ideas, designs, techniques, systems, tools, evaluations, scientific investigations, methodologies, social issues or policy issues relating to:

  Assistive technologies that improve day-to-day life
  Assistive technologies that improve access to mainstream Computer and Information Technologies
  Innovative use of mainstream technologies to overcome access barriers
  Accessibility and usability of mainstream technologies
  Identification of barriers to technology access that are not addressed by existing research


Submissions (closes Friday June 29, 2012)

Students wishing to participate should submit an abstract of their work on a topic relevant to the mission of the ASSETS series, as described in the call-for-papers. Submissions MUST contain substantial original, unpublished material. Preference will be given to work that has been completed (or close to completion); the same work cannot be presented at more than one of the conference venues (SRC, DC, or as a regular technical paper).

Judges will look more favourably on complete, or nearly complete, work than research which is still in its early formative stages.

Submissions should be formatted using the ACM conference format for US letter paper size (8.5" by 11"). Submissions should be a maximum of 2 pages long and submitted as a PDF. Successful entries will be published in the ASSETS 2011 proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

Preference will be given to work that has been completed (or close to completion); the same work cannot be presented at more than one of the conference venues (SRC, DC, or as a regular technical paper)

Submissions are open at:<https://www.softconf.com/c/assets2012-src/>
