Call for Papers

Scaling up machine-learning (ML), data mining (DM) and reasoning algorithms from Artificial Intelligence (AI) for massive datasets is a major technical challenge in the time of "Big Data". The past ten years have seen the rise of multi-core and GPU based computing. In parallel and distributed computing, several frameworks such as OpenMP, OpenCL, and Spark continue to facilitate scaling up ML/DM/AI algorithms using higher levels of abstraction. We invite novel works that advance the trio-fields of ML/DM/AI through development of scalable algorithms or computing frameworks. Ideal submissions should describe methods for scaling up X using Y on Z, where potential choices for X, Y and Z are provided below.

Scaling up

Recommender systems
Optimization algorithms (gradient descent, Newton methods)
Deep learning
Sampling/sketching techniques
Clustering (agglomerative techniques, graph clustering, clustering heterogeneous data)
Classification (SVM and other classifiers)
SVD and other matrix computations
Probabilistic inference (Bayesian networks)
Logical reasoning
Graph algorithms/graph mining and knowledge graphs
Semi-supervised learning
Online/streaming learning
Generative adversarial networks

Using

Parallel architectures/frameworks (OpenMP, OpenCL, OpenACC, Intel TBB)
Distributed systems/frameworks (GraphLab, Hadoop, MPI, Spark)
Machine learning frameworks (TensorFlow, PyTorch, Theano, Caffe)

On

Clusters of conventional CPUs
Many-core CPU (e.g. Xeon Phi)
FPGA
Specialized ML accelerators (e.g. GPU and TPU)

Proceedings of the Parlearning workshop will be distributed at the conference and will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference.

Awards

Best Paper Award: The program committee will nominate a paper for the Best Paper award. In past years, the Best Paper award included a cash prize. Stay tuned for this year!
Travel awards: Students with accepted papers have a chance to apply for a travel award. Please find details on the IEEE IPDPS web page.
