HPML 2020

3rd High Performance Machine Learning Workshop

NEWS: Due to Covid-19 CCGrid and HPML2020 is posponed to November 2-5 2020

May 11th, 2020 November 2nd, 2020, Melbourne - Australia.

Held in conjunction with IEEE / ACM CCGRID 2020


This workshop is intended to bring together the Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High Performance Computing (HPC) communities. In recent years, much progress has been made in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in general. This progress required heavy use of high performance computers and accelerators. Moreover, ML and AI have become a “killer application” for HPC and, consequently, driven much research in this area. These facts point to an important cross-fertilization that this workshop intends to nourish.

We invite researchers and professionals to take part in this workshop to discuss the challenges of Machine Learning, AI and HPC, and share their insights, use cases, tools and best practices.

Proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore.

We invite authors to submit original work to HPML. All papers will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.

Submissions must be in English, limited to 8 pages (including figures, tables and references) in the IEEE conference format (see https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html )

All submissions should be made electronically through the Easychair website ( https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hpml2020 ).

At least one author who has a paper accepted must register for the conference - IEEE / ACM CCGRID 2020 - and attend the workshop to present their paper. Authors who do not register and present their paper, or arrange for a knowledgeable colleague to present it, will not have their paper published.
