Getting Involved as a Student

SIGCSE provides two excellent ways for students to get involved in their professional community.
Both are highly recommended to students looking for ways to engage.

Student Research Competition

Winning the ACM Student Research Competition is a prestigious event in a young computer scientist’s career, and excellent experience for undergraduate and graduate students alike. If you’re interested in taking part (and you should be), take a look at the details regarding submission contents and deadlines.


It is widely known in academic circles that the SIGCSE volunteer T-shirt is a rare and glorious thing; it is not uncommon for them to sell, even in their worn and slightly abused state, for hundreds of dollars. Find out how you, too, can get your SIGCSE attendance costs waived, and become part of this long, proud tradition.
