community. Please submit your extended abstracts through the
### Important dates
Submissions due: 14 Jun 2019 (Friday)
https://icfp19src.hotcrp.com Notification: 28 Jun 2019 (Friday)
Conference: 18 August (Sunday) - 23 August (Friday)
Each submission (referred to as "abstract" below) should include the
student author’s name and e-mail address; institutional affiliation;
research advisor’s name; ACM student member number; category
(undergraduate or graduate); research title; and an extended abstract
addressing the following:
* Problem and Motivation: Clearly state the problem being addressed and
explain the reasons for seeking a solution to this problem.
* Background and Related Work: Describe the specialized (but
pertinent) background necessary to appreciate the work in the
context of ICFP areas of interest. Include references to the
literature where appropriate, and briefly explain where your work
departs from that done by others.
* Approach and Uniqueness: Describe your approach in addressing the
problem and clearly state how your approach is novel.
* Results and Contributions: Clearly show how the results of your work
contribute to programming language design and implementation in
particular and to computer science in general; explain the
significance of those results.
* Submissions must be original research that is not already published
at ICFP or another conference or journal. One of the goals of the
SRC is to give students feedback on ongoing, unpublished
work. Furthermore, the abstract must be authored solely by the
student. If the work is collaborative with others and*or part of a
larger group project, the abstract should make clear what the
student’s role was and should focus on that portion of the work.
* Formatting: Submissions must be in PDF format, printable in black
and white on US Letter sized paper, and interpretable by common PDF
tools. All submissions must adhere to the "ACM Small" template that
is available (in both LaTeX and Word formats) from
https://www.acm.org/publications/authors/submissions. For authors
using LaTeX, a lighter-weight package, including only the essential
files, is available from
http://sigplan.org/Resources/Author/#acmart-format. The submission
must not exceed 3 pages in PDF format. Reference lists do not count
towards the 3-page limit.
