Call for Student Research Competition (SRC)

The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) offers a unique forum for undergraduate and graduate students to present their original research before a panel of judges and attendees at CGO. Participants must be undergraduates or graduate students pursuing an academic degree at the time of initial submission. Participants must be current student members of the ACM.

To participate in the competition, a student must submit an extended abstract (500 words).

The abstracts will be reviewed by a selection committee and selected abstracts will be invited to present as posters at the conference. SRC poster submissions are, in addition, evaluated by a jury during the poster session at the conference. The best three posters are then invited to give a short presentation (10 minutes + 5 minutes questions) on the next day. Based on the submitted abstract, the poster, and the presentation, the winner of CGO’s Student Research Competition will be selected, who will receive an award. In addition, the winner will be invited to participate in the grand 2023 ACM SRC competition. Further information on the ACM SRC is available at:

Submissions in the form of an extended abstract are solicited in any topics relevant to the main conference, including:

  • Code Generation, Translation, Transformation, and Optimization for performance, energy, virtualization, portability, security, or reliability concerns, and architectural support
  • Efficient execution of dynamically typed and higher-level languages Optimization and code generation for emerging programming models, platforms, domain-specific languages
  • Dynamic/static, profile-guided, feedback-directed, and machine learning-based optimization
  • Static, Dynamic, and Hybrid Analysis for performance, energy, memory locality, throughput or latency, security, reliability, or functional debugging
  • Program characterization methods
  • Efficient profiling and instrumentation techniques; architectural support
  • Novel and efficient tools
  • Compiler design, practice, and experience
  • Compiler abstraction and intermediate representations
  • Vertical integration of language features, representations, optimizations, and runtime support for parallelism
  • Solutions that involve cross-layer (HW/OS/VM/SW) design and integration
  • Deployed dynamic/static compiler and runtime systems for general-purpose, embedded system and Cloud/HPC platforms
  • Parallelism, heterogeneity, and reconfigurable architectures
  • Optimizations for heterogeneous or specialized targets, GPUs, SoCs, CGRA
  • Compiler-support for vectorization, thread extraction, task scheduling, speculation, transaction, memory management, data distribution, and synchronization

Travel grant application

Please note that there is no travel grant dedicated to the Student Research Competition, however qualified students can apply for the CGO Travel Grant. Please find more information regarding the travel grants at this page.

Submission Information

Submission must be about unpublished work that is not under review anywhere.

Extended abstracts of up to 500 words should be submitted by email with CGO SRC in the subject to on or before December 15, 2022.

All submissions will be reviewed by a selection committee. Notifications will be sent out by January 10th, 2023.

Please format your submission using the SIGPLAN format found here. Use one 8.5″x11″ single spaced, double-column page, with 10pt or larger font. Figures are accepted. Include your name and the name of your advisor(s). Optionally, send a pdf of the poster you plan to present (this does not have to be the final version of the poster).
