Systems for ML

Workshop on Systems for ML at NeurIPS 2019

December 13, 2019

Call for Papers - Systems for ML Workshop @ NeurIPS 2019

We invite participation in the Systems for ML Workshop which will be held in conjunction with NeurIPS 2019 on December 13, 2019 in Vancouver, Canada.


The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts working at the crossroads of machine learning, system design and software engineering to explore the challenges faced when building practical large-scale ML systems. In particular, we aim to elicit new connections among these fields, and identify tools, best practices and design principles. The workshop will cover ML and AI platforms and algorithm toolkits (Caffe2, TensorFlow, PyTorch etc), as well as dive into ML focused developments in various systems topics.

We welcome high quality submissions in the broad area of large scale systems and software design for machine learning. A few (non-exhaustive) topics of interest include:

  • Systems for training and serving machine learning models at scale
  • Systems for online and interactive learning algorithms
  • Large scale distributed learning algorithms in practice
  • Database systems for large scale learning
  • Specialized or custom hardware for machine learning
  • Programming languages for machine learning
  • Benchmarking systems (for machine learning algorithms)
  • Model understanding tools (debugging, visualization, introspection, etc).
  • Systems for collecting, preparing, and managing machine learning data

Through invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations by the participants, this workshop will showcase the latest advances in machine learning systems and address challenges at the intersection of machine learning and system design.

Dual submissions: The workshop proceedings will be published on the workshop website, but are considered non-archival for the purposes of dual submissions. We welcome work that has already been published or is under submission to a conference, and publishing at the workshop should not preclude you from submitting to conferences in the future. However, please check any conference policies as well.
