[DMANET] High Performance Machine Learning Workshop with IEEE ACM CCGrid


Second High Performance Machine Learning Workshop - HPML 2019

In conjunction with the 19th IEEE/ACM International Symposium in Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing - CCGrid 2019
May 14th, 2019 - Cyprus

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 as well. These facts point to an important cross-fertilization that this workshop intends to nourish.

We invite authors to submit original work to HPML. Proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore. Pending special issue of a top journal for the best papers of HPML2019 - in the last edition of the workshop, best papers were invited to Elsevier JPDC - Special Issue on Advances on Parallel and High Performance Computing for AI Applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Machine learning (including deep learning) models
- Large scale machine learning applications
- Statistical models
- Large scale data analytics
- Machine learning applied to HPC
- Accelerated Machine Learning
- HPC applied to Machine Learning
- Benchmarking, performance evaluation, and analysis of ML models
- Hardware acceleration for ML and AI
- Parallel ML and AI models
- HPC infrastructure and resource management for ML
- Parallel Causal Models

Submissions must be in English, limited to 8 pages in the IEEE conference format - see:

All submissions should be made electronically through the Easychair website -
