The Deep Learning on Supercomputers workshop has issued its Call for Papers. The event takes place June 25 as part of ISC 2020 in Frankfurt, Germany.

The Deep Learning on Supercomputers is the fourth workshop in the Deep Learning on Supercomputers series. The workshop provides a forum for practitioners working on any and all aspects of DL for scientific research in the High Performance Computing (HPC) context to present their latest research results and development, deployment, and application experiences. The general theme of this workshop series is the intersection of DL and HPC, while the theme of this particular workshop is centered around the applications of deep learning methods in scientific research: novel uses of deep learning methods, e.g., convolutional neural networks (CNN), recurrent neural networks (RNN), generative adversarial network (GAN), and reinforcement learning (RL), for both natural and social science research, and innovative applications of deep learning in traditional numerical simulation. Its scope encompasses application development in scientific scenarios using HPC platforms; DL methods applied to numerical simulation; fundamental algorithms, enhanced procedures, and software development methods to enable scalable training and inference; hardware changes with impact on future supercomputer design; and machine deployment, performance evaluation, and reproducibility practices for DL applications with an emphasis on scientific usage.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • DL as a novel approach of scientific computing
  • Emerging scientific applications driven by DL methods
  • Novel interactions between DL and traditional numerical simulation
  • Effectiveness and limitations of DL methods in scientific research
  • Algorithms and procedures to enhance reproducibility of scientific DL applications
  • DL for science workflows
  • Data management through the life cycle of scientific DL applications
  • General algorithms and procedures for efficient and scalable DL training
  • Scalable DL methods to address the challenges of demanding scientific applications
  • General algorithms and systems for large scale model serving for scientific use cases
  • New software, and enhancements to existing software, for scalable DL
  • DL communication optimization at scale
  • I/O optimization for DL at scale
  • DL performance evaluation and analysis on deployed systems
  • DL performance modeling and tuning of DL on supercomputers
  • DL benchmarks on supercomputers
  • Novel hardware designs for more efficient DL
  • Processors, accelerators, memory hierarchy, interconnect changes with impact on deep learning in the HPC context

As part of the reproducibility initiative, the workshop requires authors to provide information such as the algorithms, software releases, datasets, and hardware configurations used. For performance evaluation studies, we will encourage authors to use well-known benchmarks or applications with open accessible datasets: for example, MLPerf and ResNet-50 with the ImageNet-1K dataset.
