IPDPS Student Research Program

* Call for Applications *

Participating students will have the opportunity to 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. PhD, Master and Undergraduate 
students who are doing research in broadly defined areas related to 
parallel and distributed processing are eligible for participation.

To encourage participation in the Student Research Program, PhD Forum 
participants who are IEEE members are eligible for travel grants and 
discounted registration fees.  (Discounted registration fee does not 
apply to students who are the sole registered author of a paper being 
presented in the main conference or workshops.)

The application consists of a 2 page submission document and a letter of 
support form the student advisor.

* Deadlines *

The goal is to accept as many applications as our capacity allows, but 
the availability of our resources, including travel support, will limit 
the number of participants in the program.  To be fair, we will employ a 
“first-come-first-served” approach, with a rolling selection process to 
be used until the capacity is reached, based on the following schedule:

First deadline: 15 January  2017  Notification: 30 January 2017
Second deadline: 15 February 2017  Notification: 28 February 2017
Last deadline: 1 March 2017  Notification: 7 March 2017

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.

The IPDPS 2017 workshops will be held on Monday, May 29th and Friday, 
June 2nd. 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. Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the 
conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital 
Library after the conference.

All workshops have their own Web sites and may make changes in their 
submission requirements and due dates (submission deadlines for most are 
after January 8, 2017, the conference notification date).
