CHALLENGE20- First International Workshop on Benchmarking Machine
Learning Workloads on Emerging Hardware, 2020.
To be held along with Third Conference on Machine Learning and Systems (MLSys)
Austin, TX, March 2-4, 2020


With evolving system architectures, hardware and software stack,
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 mapping.  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) what novel aspects of hardware, such as heterogeneity
in compute, memory, and bandwidth, will drive their adoption; (iv)
performance modeling and projections to next generation hardware.
Along with selected publications, the workshop program will also have
experts in these research areas presenting their recent work and
potential directions to pursue

We solicit both full papers (8-10 pages) and short/position papers
(4-page) and are not double-blinded, the author names need to be
included. The authors will need to mark any conflicts of interest with
PC members at the submission site. The page limit includes figures,
tables and appendices excluding references. Please use standard LaTeX
or word ACM templates. All submissions will need to be made via
EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=challenge20). 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.

We aim to publish all accepted papers in ACM digital library.

Important Dates:
Paper submission deadline: January 15, 2020
Author Notification: February 7, 2020
Camera-ready papers due: February 21, 2020
Workshop Date: (tentative) March 4, 2020

All deadlines are at midnight anywhere on earth (AoE), and are firm.
