TCPP news from the chair Anne Benoit

I would like to thank Guillaume Pallez, who acted as Web/Newsletter coordinator for TCPP these last few years, and welcome Clément Foyer, from Univ. Reims Champagne-Ardennes, France, who is taking over. Thank you Clément!
Also, I am looking forward to an in-person conference at IPDPS this year. In particular, the traditional TCPP reception can be held again, after all these years of virtual conferences. The reception will be on Monday, May 15, in St Petersburg, Florida, at 6pm, and I look forward to seeing many of you at this event.
