2024 Call for Workshop Proposals

IPDPS 2024 invites two types of workshop proposals: renewal proposals and new workshop proposals.

Important Dates:

  • Renewal Workshop Proposals: September 5, 2023 
  • New Workshop Proposals: September 11, 2023
  • Notification: September 22, 2023

(An extension to the above deadlines is not expected.)



Usually held on the first and last days of the conference, IPDPS workshops provide an extended forum that allows the IPDPS community an opportunity to fully explore special topics and to present work that is more preliminary and cutting-edge or that has more practical content than the more mature research presented in the main symposium. Each workshop has its own requirements and schedule for submissions. Workshop paper submission dates typically fall after the notification date for the main symposium papers. Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference. 

IPDPS 2024 and all associated events including workshops are scheduled to be held in-person between the dates of May 27-31, 2024 in San Francisco, California, USA. Workshops will be held on May 27 and May 31.

IPDPS 2024 invites new workshop proposals on emerging topics in parallel and distributed computing and related areas. All proposals should assume that the workshop will be conducted as part of the physical conference, but organizers should also show they are prepared to conduct either a hybrid or virtual workshop as needed. The proposal should emphasize the relevance of the workshop to the IPDPS community, and it should demonstrate the steps to be taken to assure technical quality of the submissions. Contact the Workshops Chairs before preparing a proposal to discuss your intent to submit.

  • Description: Provide a brief description of the workshop, its scope and topics; the list of organizers with the confirmed chair(s); the program committee members (indicate whether the members have been confirmed); and the important dates. A URL to the main page of the tentative workshop must be included. A workshop proposal where no website containing the main information has been setup will be rejected.
  • Organizers: Provide a short vita of the organizers by listing the current affiliation, position, and previous experience in organizing other events including workshops/conferences/panels at IPDPS or other venues. Provide contact information (name and email) of at most 3 person IPDPS should use as point of contact.
  • History: If re-running (earlier editions were held somewhere other than IPDPS), provide general information by listing the name of the workshop, the hosting conference, year, number of papers submitted, number of papers accepted, number of attendees; if there were posters/panels, their numbers and topics (for panels), and URL’s of the existing web pages.
  • Targeted papers and audience: Provide information on targeted papers and audience: (i) Where are the papers from (government labs, universities, industry); (ii) What is the expected profile of the participants (speakers + audience)? (iii) How will the workshop be advertised? Having a clear target audience and plan to engage that group has proven to be critical in attracting high quality submissions and organizing a successful workshop.
  • Format of the workshop: Provide a short overview of the format by indicating if the workshop (i) will have peer reviewed papers in the proceedings? (ii) will it be half-day or full-day long? (iii) will have a keynote talk (including a tentative list of speakers)? (iv) will have a panel (including a topic and potential panelists)? (v) will have external (e.g., NSF) support for student participants?
  • Timeline of activities: Provide a concise timeline of the main activities that will be conducted by the workshop team, identifying the people who will be conducting individual activities, from the time workshop accept notification is received to the day of the workshop at IPDPS. This timeline needs to include (but not limited to) milestones such as identification of program chair, website launch, release of call for papers, program committee invitations, submission deadline, and notifications.


IPDPS Workshops from the preceding year(s) should apply for renewal. Only those workshops which were conducted as part of IPDPS 2023 will be considered for renewal. Renewal proposals should provide a detailed assessment of the past five years of workshop including that of 2023, including submission and acceptance statistics, identify elements that succeeded versus aspects that need significant improvement, and propose a plan to strengthen the workshop program. Only workshop proposals that address these in detail and provide a credible plan for ensuring a high-quality program will be renewed. In some cases, where there may be redundancy across workshops, the workshop chairs may suggest consolidation across teams. It is therefore important for renewal workshop organizers to be at least familiar with recent workshops that were offered at IPDPS (available from IPDPS conference archive webpage). For more information, please contact the workshops chairs at Any workshop run prior to (but not part of) IPDPS 2023 will not be considered as a renewal and instead should apply as “new”.

What/where to submit:

The submission link for submitting proposals is here. Submitted proposals may not exceed three (3) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references.


All submitted proposals for both new and renewal requests will be reviewed by a workshops committee. The workshop chairs may communicate with the proposed workshop organizers for any additional clarifications. Notifications are expected to be mailed on September 22, 2023 so that workshop planning activities can begin right after.
