ScaDL 2021: Third IPDPS Workshop on Scalable Deep Learning over Parallel And Distributed Infrastructures

Our apologies for multiple postings.

Welcome to ScaDL 2021 — the Third IPDPS Workshop on Scalable Deep Learning over Parallel and Distributed Infrastructures,
held virtually in conjunction with the 35th IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium. The workshop will
foster collaboration among researchers from the distributed/parallel computing and deep learning communities to share the
relevant topics as well as results of the current approaches lying at the intersection of distributed/parallel computing and deep learning.

We have a good participation from both academia and industry. Our six keynote speakers include eminent technical leaders from
industry (IBM Research, Google Research, Anyscale), academia (RPI, ETH Zurich, Harvard University), and national labs (BSC).

ScaDL 2021 will be held on line (virtually) on May 21 from 7.00 to 14.00 PDT according to the following program.

Registration is required for participation.

The logistics for attending the conference (URL, etc.) will be emailed to registered participants.
