About the Conference 

The MLSys research community is rapidly growing, both in academia and industry. This area historically has not been particularly well addressed by existing Machine Learning or Systems focused conferences.

To bridge this gap, we have created a new conference for research spanning ML and systems called MLSys. The goal is to make a home for exceptional research by creating a venue to showcase the work that occurs at the intersection of systems and machine learning and a community with expertise in both areas to evaluate the work.

The steering committee and program committees consist of 50 leading members of emerging machine learning systems area coming from industry and academia with expertise ranging from machine learning to systems to security.

Conference Overview

The Conference on Machine Learning and Systems targets research at the intersection of machine learning and systems. The conference aims to elicit new connections amongst these fields, including identifying best practices and design principles for learning systems, as well as developing novel learning methods and theory tailored to practical machine learning workflows. Topics include:

- 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, interpretability and explainability for ML applications  - Data preparation, feature selection, and feature extraction
- ML programming models and abstractions  - ML compilers and runtime
- Programming languages for machine learning  - Visualization of data, models, and predictions
- Specialized hardware for machine learning  - Hardware-efficient ML methods
- Machine Learning for Systems  - Systems for Machine Learning
