International Performance, Computing, and Communications Conference (IPCCC) is the premier IEEE conference presenting research in the performance of computer and communication systems. For nearly two decades, IPCCC has been a research forum for academic, industrial, and government researchers. The lively interactions among the researchers from these merging fields provide a stimulating environment rich with new ideas.  We encourage submission of high quality papers reporting original work in both theoretical and experimental research in the topic areas listed below.

For the first time, IPCCC2000 will award about ten STUDENT TRAVEL AWARDS. First preference will be given to students presenting papers. The awards will be in the form of air fare and/or hotel accommodation. The application forms will be placed at this website in the month of October.
