The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University had an influential role in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ 33rd International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS) held in May in Brazil. IPDPS gathers engineers and scientists from around the world to present their research and engage in international cooperation in all aspects of parallel computation.

The symposium offers six different program areas. Dr. Dilma Da Silva, department head, chaired the system software track. Dr. Nancy Amato, professor emeritus, chaired the multidisciplinary track.

Dr. Lawrence Rauchwerger, Eppright Professor, was one of the three keynote speakers for the event. His talk titled “Two Roads to Parallelism: From Serial Code to Programming with STAPL” presented the irrelevance of parallel computers without efficient parallel software.
