More About the PhD Forum

The IPDPS PhD Forum focuses on current graduate students working toward a PhD in broadly defined areas related to parallel and distributed processing. This forum at IPDPS offers graduate students an opportunity to present a research poster describing their ongoing dissertation to the entire IPDPS conference audience. It is also an opportunity to discuss their research with experts in academia and industry during the conference and to make useful contacts regarding future career opportunities related to their research. At the same time, the IPDPS conference attendees, including representatives from industry and academia, are able to preview upcoming developments in parallel and distributed processing and related technologies.


The IPDPS PhD Forum is sponsored by the Technical Committee on Parallel Processing of the IEEE Computer Society as part of its mission to promote parallel processing research and education, especially at the PhD level.
