Hypertext 2009
The Twentieth ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia
June 29th - July 1st, 2009, Torino, Italy

Hypertext 2009 will be participating in the ACM Student Research Competition sponsored by Microsoft Research. The SRC, which is held at select ACM conferences, will provide an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students attending Hypertext 2009 to receive a $500 travel grant from Microsoft Research to present their research at Hypertext 2009. 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 2009 and to receive recognition from ACM for the quality of their research.

The Hypertext 2009 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 graduate and undergraduate winners will receive cash awards.

The Hypertext 2009 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.
