In recognition of our new name, in Y2K we are introducing the
Best Paper awards for each of the technical tracks: Algorithms,
Applications, Architecture, & Software.
Selection of "best
papers" will be based on recommendations by the program committee and
final review by the program chair and vice chairs. Authors selected for
the IPDPS Best Paper award will have the honor of presenting their work in
a special IPDPS plenary session. Arrangements are also being made for a
special IPDPS edition of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing
that will feature extended versions of the best papers.
