Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 physical meeting was canceled. The decision to cancel the in-person meeting did not impact the publication of the IPDPS 2020 proceedings, and IEEE will be hosting the accepted authors' work on Xplore following the conference.

The conference program of the papers accepted for the main conference as well as all of the papers in the 21 workshops, accompanied by presentation slides from the authors, was available online prior to the conference. All of the workshops were able to conduct a virtual online program in various formats. For details, see the individual web page of the workshops. One hour plenary virtual sessions for the main conference were held as follows.

  • Tuesday, May 19: Best paper presentations and Q&A session.

IPDPS 2020 General Co-chairs Closing Message

To say that this was an unusual year would be much more than an understatement. Nevertheless, the essence of IPDPS as a premier conference in the area remains strong, healthy and vibrant. We owe this to the countless people (authors, and many others included) who have silently helped bring the pieces together. In the spirit of a city that came roaring back from the calamity of Katrina, and the rest of us looking to emerge from the COVID-19 situation, we are eager for IPDPS to experience the magic of New Orleans sometime in the near future. For now, we hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy…
