The IPDPS PhD Forum focuses on current graduate students working toward a PhD in broadly defined areas related to parallel and distributed processing. The Forum offers them an opportunity to present a research poster describing their ongoing dissertation to the entire IPDPS conference audience and to discuss their research with experts in academia and industry during the conference and to make useful contacts regarding future applications of their work. 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. These papers will be available through the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library.
