IPDPS 2021 will be held in Portland, Oregon, which sits on the Columbia and Willamette rivers in the shadow of snow-capped Mount Hood and is known for its parks, bridges and bicycle paths, as well as for its eco-friendliness, the world’s largest bookstore, and its craft microbreweries. Planning for the 35th edition of IPDPS will be informed by experience in 2020 and collaboration with the IPDPS community to continue the programming that promotes international cooperation in seeking to apply computer science technology to the betterment of our global village.
