Call for Papers:

MLBench at MLSys 2022

Final Submission Deadline
January 17, 2021

Third Workshop on Benchmarking Machine Learning Workloads on Emerging Hardware (MLBench)
Co-located with MLSys 2022
April 14, 2022
Santa Clara, CA

Call for Contributions

With evolving system architectures, hardware and software stacks, diverse machine learning (ML) workloads, and data, it is important to understand how these components interact with each other. Well-defined benchmarking procedures help evaluate and reason the performance gains with ML workload-to-system mappings. We welcome all novel submissions in benchmarking machine learning workloads from all disciplines, such as image and speech recognition, language processing, drug discovery, simulations, and scientific applications.

Key problems that we seek to address are:
(i) which representative ML benchmarks cater to workloads seen in industry, national labs, and interdisciplinary sciences;
(ii) how to characterize the ML workloads based on their interaction with hardware;
(iii) which novel aspects of hardware, such as heterogeneity in compute, memory, and networking, will drive their adoption;
(iv) performance modeling and projections to next-generation hardware.

We solicit both full papers (8-10 pages) and short/position papers (4 page). Submissions are not double blind (author names must be included). The page limit includes figures, tables, and appendices, but excludes references. Please use standard LaTeX or Word ACM templates. All submissions will need to be made via EasyChair (submission website: here). Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers from the program committee. Papers will be reviewed for novelty, quality, technical strength, and relevance to the workshop. All accepted papers will be published here. A Best Paper Award will be awarded to an outstanding submission.
