IPDPS 2023 PhD Forum

The IPDPS PhD Forum focuses on current graduate students working toward a PhD in broadly defined areas related to parallel and distributed processing. Previous IPDPS PhD forums have offered graduate students an opportunity to present a research poster describing their ongoing research to the entire IPDPS conference audience, and to discuss their research with experts in academia and industry, and to make useful contacts regarding future career opportunities.

The goal of the IPDPS PhD Forum is to provide a comprehensive venue for students to better prepare for their research and career in parallel and distributed computing. 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 conference will publish abstracts for the posters accepted for presentation at the PhD Forum. These will be included as part of the conference workshops proceedings (IPDPSW 2023). The abstracts will be formatted as part of a compendium that includes contact information for the poster authors and advisors.

Planned Program

  • PhD Forum Posters on display all day Tuesday & Wednesday
  • Student presenters available during all breaks and 6:00-7:30 PM Wednesday

Information for PhD Forum Poster Presenters

The conference area for display of posters will be available Monday evening. All posters should be on display by 9:30 AM on Tuesday, May 16th. They will be in a room that is near the lobby area where conference attendees will be able to view posters between sessions. The posters should be 32x40 inches (or 80x100cm). Student presenters are warmly encouraged to prepare professional rolled up posters, in contrast with a mosaic of small slides to post. The poster should preferably be printed with a high-quality device. The location for hanging the poster will be numbered using your PhD poster number in the program. Push pins or tape will be provided for mounting your poster. See poster guidelines at end of page.

Poster Guidelines

Some basic guidelines on how to organize your poster include:

  • Relax, posters are intended to engage an interested person in conversation and then support that conversation.
  • Posters should be no larger than an A0 paper size. If it is horizontally structured, please still fit within the portrait dimensions specified (33.1 x 46.8 in max).
  • Be sure the title and organizational affiliations are clear along the top.
  • Consider the normal left-to-right, top-to-bottom reading order for English when organizing the contents. Multiple columns are perfectly acceptable
  • Include a QR code to a website that includes the poster abstract and an electronic copy of the poster itself.
  • If existing publications by the poster authors exist on the topic, these should be the only references.
  • Balance the amount of graphics and text. A visitor should be able to get the high level view within 1 minute and decide if they want to engage you.
  • Graphics should show structure and general measurements that illustrate the results.
  • Text should explain things without large paragraphs explaining.
  • Text should be large enough to easily read at 6 feet (2 meters) distance.
  • Assume the viewer is somewhat to generally knowledgeable about the topic eliminating the need for long motivational passages.
  • Provide sufficient motivational material to show at a glance the poster authors understand potential impact.
  • Compensate for color blindness is important. Design for monochrome but add color to highlight.
