Call for Expression of Interest (EOI) to Host Future IPDPS

At its next meeting in May 2021, the IPDPS Steering Committee will consider EOI to host future events including IPDPS 2023. EOI must be from active researchers, not from conference management entities. The proposers must have had previous IPDPS experience (for example, participant in the meeting, volunteer at the meeting including serving on the program committee, etc.). Selected EOI will be asked to submit further details and will be advised in its preparation. EOI should be brief (three to five pages) and should contain information on:

  • the site (local infrastructure and travel connections)
  • the organization team (the general chair and key volunteers, their experience in running conferences, their prior experience with IPDPS, their research experience in topics of interest to IPDPS)
  • key budget items (including room rates, meeting space cost, etc.)

Historically, the technical organization of the meeting is decoupled from other key positions (such as general chair). The steering committee will discuss and recommend a program chair for the meeting. EOI must be submitted in electronic form to The timeline is as follows:

  • 15 April 2021: EOI due
  • April-May 2021: Clarification and review of the EOI
  • May 2021, at IPDPS 2021: decision for 2023 and 2024

EOI may include, as appendices, brochures or other printed material concerning the locale and conference facilities, if these are available. EOI will be evaluated using the following criteria:

  • Economic viability
  • Academic reputation of key volunteers
  • Level of commitment
  • Transport and accessibility
  • Maintaining a balance between different locations
  • Experience of the organizers in hosting international conferences

For information on previous events - people, places, and programs - see conference archives.
