IPDPS 2009 Hosted By

IPDPS 2009 TCPP PhD Forum


The PhD Forum will be start at 1:00 PM on Thursday and officially conclude at 6 PM. Presenters will be on hand to describe their work and to discuss their research with conference attendees. The twenty-four selected posters will also be available for viewing during the Thursday evening TCPP Reception that follows. A Best Poster award will be presented at the end of the day at the TCPP General Membership Meeting.

Information for PhD Forum Poster Presenters
The poster board is 32x40 inches (or 80x100 cm) in size, and will accommodate 12 to 13 slides (each slide being 8.5x11 inches or 21x27 cm). The Poster Session will be held in a room located near the conference registration desk. It will be available at 12:30 on Thursday, and TCPP PhD Forum committee members will be on hand to provide assistance. Check at registration if you have any questions before then.

The IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP) acts as an international forum to promote parallel processing research and education and participates in setting up technical standards in this area. Issues related to the design, analysis and implementation of parallel systems and solutions are of interest. These include design and analysis of parallel architectures and algorithms, and application development on parallel machines. TCPP sponsors professional meetings, brings out publications, sets guidelines for educational programs, and coordinates academia, funding agency, and industry activities in the above areas.
