We encourage you to explore the many opportunities presented by our extensive and diverse schedule of technical sessions. IPDPS workshops - held on the Monday and Friday - provide attendees an opportunity to explore special topics and are a major part of the IPDPS week-long family of events. Each workshop has its own requirements and schedule for submissions and all are linked from the IPDPS Web site. Attendance at all of the IPDPS workshops, along with receipt of their proceedings, is included in the registration fee for IPDPS. There is no separate registration fee for individual workshops. Workshop papers are published in the same printed abstract volume and CD-ROM proceedings as the main conference.
Below is the list of workshops planned for IPDPS 2009 in Rome, Italy. Workshops will be held in both of the Aurelia Convention Centre & Expo hotels: the Grand Hotel Palazzo Carpegna at the Centre and - five minutes away - the Torre Rossa Park Hotel. Closer to the conference, meeting room information will be posted here, so you can plan in advance for attendance at workshops.
The goal of the workshops is to present work that is more preliminary and cutting-edge or that has more practical content than the more mature research presented in the main symposium. The workshops also broaden the content of the week's presentations by extending the topics of interest beyond those of the main symposium. At the same time, they deepen the week's content by focusing on specific topics and bringing together a critical mass of researchers in their select areas.
Use the link below to visit the Web sites for details on workshops of particular interest, including the advance program listing papers to be presented and speakers and panels.
