	International Conference on Parallel Processing (ICPP 2018)
		    Ph.D. Forum - Call for Applications

The International Conference on Parallel Processing (ICPP) is an event for
engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to present
their latest research findings in all aspects of parallel and distributed
computing.  It is also an important event for Ph.D. graduate students to
connect to the world of parallel computing in research institutions,
scientific laboratories, and industry.  ICPP was known in the early days as
a conference where graduate student could interact informally with faculty
and researchers during the conference.  In this spirit, ICPP 2018 will host
a Ph.D. Forum to enable Ph.D. students to (i) present their research in
parallel computing to ICPP attendees, (ii) discuss their research ideas
with other ICPP participants, (iii) expand their understanding of the
parallel computing field by attending ICPP workshops and conference
sessions, and (iv) explore potential research projects with new ICPP

The Ph.D. Forum will be organized to deliver significant educational and
career mentoring value to the participating Ph.D. students.  Each
Ph.D. student applying to the Ph.D. Forum will be required to submit a
poster and an extended research abstract.  The Ph.D. Forum committee will
select Ph.D. students for participation.  Among those selected, 24 will
be chosen by the committee to receive a complimentary full registrations to
attend ICPP.  This support is made possible by a grant from the National
Science Foundation, Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure.

The Ph.D. Forum activities will include a mentor lunch on the first day
where students can give a short introduction to their research to faculty
members and other researchers.  At the poster session and reception,
faculty/researcher mentors will visit the Ph.D. student posters and engage
in discussion and networking.  An informal fireside chat will take place
after the poster session in the evening.  All of the materials provided by
the student will be available to the ICPP attendees.  On the second day of the
Ph.D. Forum, a lunch session will be held with a quest speaker, followed by
a panel session in the afternoon.  Interactions will continue with the ICPP
conference dinner in the evening.

To apply for the Ph.D. Forum, Ph.D. student must submit a poster using the
poster submission process.  In addition, they must submit an extended
research abstract (500 words or less) describing their research objectives,
research progress, and current status in the Ph.D. program.  Any student
requesting consideration based on financial need should include a statement
(<100 words) explaining the reasons why.
