IPDPS 2013 PhD Forum


PhD Forum Co-Chairs
Luc Bougé, ENS Cachan, France
Bo Hong, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA

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 2013 in Boston offers graduate students an opportunity to present a research poster describing their ongoing research 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. Moreover, the authors may describe their dissertation proposal and preliminary results in a short paper, which will be published with the proceedings of the IPDPS Workshops distributed at the conference and available through the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library.


A scientific committee, co-chaired by Prof. Luc Bougé and Prof. Bo Hong, evaluated submissions received in response to the 2013 call for posters. This review committee included volunteers from the main conference program committee who nominated younger colleagues to also participate in the review of the proposals submitted. Twenty-three students have been selected to display a poster describing their dissertation research. The posters in the list available here have been grouped under related conference tracks of algorithms, applications, architecture and software.

The poster should preferably be printed with a high-quality device. The location for hanging your poster will be numbered using your PhD-xx paper id. Push pins will be provided for mounting your poster.
