Call for Papers
Training machine learning models in a centralized fashion often faces significant challenges due to regulatory and privacy concerns in real-world use cases. These include distributed training data, computational resources to create and maintain a central data repository, and regulatory guidelines (GDPR, HIPAA) that restrict sharing sensitive data. Federated learning (FL) is a new paradigm in machine learning that can mitigate these challenges by training a global model using distributed data, without the need for data sharing. The extensive application of machine learning to analyze and draw insight from real-world, distributed, and sensitive data necessitates familiarization with and adoption of this relevant and timely topic among the scientific community.
Despite the advantages of federated learning, and its successful application in certain industry-based cases, this field is still in its infancy due to new challenges that are imposed by limited visibility of the training data, potential lack of trust among participants training a single model, potential privacy inferences, and in some cases, limited or unreliable connectivity.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in FL. This day-long event will facilitate interaction among students, scholars, and industry professionals from around the world to understand the topic, identify technical challenges, and discuss potential solutions. This will lead to an overall advancement of FL and its impact in the community. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Adversarial attacks on FL
- Blockchain for FL
- Fairness in FL
- Hardware for on-device FL
- Novel applications of FL
- Operational challenges in FL
- Personalization in FL
- Privacy concerns in FL
- Privacy-preserving methods for FL
- Resource-efficient FL
- System and infrastructure for FL
- Theoretical contributions to FL
- Uncertainty in FL
- Submission Instructions

Proceedings and Dual Submission Policy
Our workshop has no formal proceedings. Accepted papers will be posted on the workshop webpage. We welcome submissions of unpublished papers, including those that are submitted/accepted to other venues if that other venue allows so. We will not accept papers that are already published though, because the goal of the workshop is to share recent results and discuss open problems.

Submission Instructions
Submissions must be at most 6 pages long, excluding references, and follow ICML-20 template. Submissions are single-blind and author identity will be revealed to the reviewers. An optional appendix of arbitrary length is allowed and should be put at the end of the paper (after references).
