Information for PhD Forum Poster Presenters
The conference area for display of posters will be available Monday evening. All posters should be on display by 9:30 AM on Tuesday, May 26th. They will be in a room that is near the lobby area where all of the breaks will be held and next door to the Industry Exhibits. Posters will be displayed there until Thursday.
Authors should expect to be standing by their posters during the breaks and then during the hour preceding the banquet on Wednesday evening. The pre-banquet reception will be held in the lobby area right outside the poster room, so attendees may circulate through the room to view posters. Presenters need to be prepared to discuss research and development with the attendees.
The posters should be 32x40 inches (or 80x100cm). Student presenters are warmly encouraged to prepare professional rolled up posters, in contrast with a mosaic of small slides to post. The poster should preferably be printed with a high-quality device. The location for hanging the poster will be numbered using your PhD poster number in the program. Push pins or tape will be provided for mounting your poster. Additional guidelines are available here.

Student Mentoring Program for 2015
The Student Research Forum provides added value to the conference to encourage advisors to bring their students to IPDPS, with an enhanced program providing a comprehensive venue for students to better prepare for their research and career path in parallel and distributed computing. Participating students will have the opportunity to both present their research work and interact with senior academic and industry people in an informal setting. In addition, there will be mentoring sessions to help students improve communication skills, obtain valuable information for career planning, get familiar with a few of the trendy research topics, and make valuable contacts – all while enjoying the IPDPS main conference and many associated workshops.
The Student Research Program will be scheduled so that the participating students can follow all the main scientific and social events of the conference, and it is open to all students, including the authors of papers presented at the conference.
