Call for Submissions to the Conference on Systems and Machine Learning 2020!

 

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research at the intersection of computer systems and machine learning. The Conference on Systems and Machine Learning Program Committee will select papers based on a combination of novelty, quality, interest, and impact.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Efficient model training, inference, and serving
  • Distributed and parallel learning algorithms
  • Privacy and security for ML applications
  • Testing, debugging, and monitoring of ML applications
  • Fairness and interpretability for ML applications
  • Data preparation, feature selection, and feature extraction
  • ML programming models and abstractions
  • Programming languages for machine learning
  • Visualization of data, models, and predictions
  • Customized hardware for machine learning
  • Hardware-efficient ML methods
  • Machine Learning for Systems
 

Reviewing process: All submissions will be double blind, though authors are allowed to post their paper on arXiv or other public forums. Key dates related to the reviewing process are given below:

  • Paper submission deadline: September 9, 2019 at 4:59pm PDT
  • Author rebuttal period: November 4-11, 2019
  • Decision notification: December 20, 2019
 

Dual submission policy: We will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for another conference or has already been published. This policy also applies to papers that overlap substantially in technical content with conference papers under review or previously published. Authors may, however, submit to Conference on Systems and Machine Learning substantially different versions of journal papers that are currently under review by a journal, but not yet accepted at the time of submission. After submission and during the review period, Conference on Systems and Machine Learning submissions must not be submitted to other conferences. However, authors may submit to non-archival venues, such as workshops without proceedings, or as technical reports (or similar, e.g., arXiv).

Proceedings: Accepted papers will be published in the form of online proceedings.

Submission format: To prepare your submission to Conference on Systems and Machine Learning 2020, please use the LaTeX style files provided at: SML2020style.tar.gz. Submitted papers will be in a 2-column format and can be up to 10 pages long, not including references. Authors may use as many pages of appendices as they wish, but reviewers are not required to read these. If you wish to include an appendix, please upload this separately from your main paper. You will be able to upload the appendix after submitting your main paper.
