SysML Conference

March 31 - April 2, 2019
Stanford, CA

SysML is a conference targeting research at the intersection of systems and machine learning. 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.

The SysML conference will be held on March 31st, April 1st, and April 2nd, 2019 in Stanford, California. Submission information can be found below; please check the website in the following weeks for additional details on the conference schedule and logistics.

Please note our Conference Code of Conduct.

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research at the intersection of computer systems and machine learning. The SysML 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

Reviewing process: All SysML 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 28, 2018
  • Author rebuttal period: November 14-21, 2018
  • Decision notification: January 4, 2019

Dual submission policy: SysML 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. SysML submissions must not be submitted to other conferences during SysML's review period. Authors may submit to SysML substantially different versions of journal papers that are currently under review by a journal, but not yet accepted at the time of submission. Informal publications, such as technical reports or papers in workshop proceedings that do not appear in print, do not fall under these restrictions.

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

Submission format: To prepare your submission to SysML 2019, please use the LaTeX style files provided at: sysml2019style.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 (after the references) as they wish, but reviewers are not required to read these.

Submission site:: Coming soon!

Submission deadline: September 28th, 2018 at 4:59pm PDT.

Notification of acceptance: January 4th, 2019.
