New Approaches for Addressing the Computing Requirements of LLMs and GNNs

Call for Papers

About The Workshop

Training and deployment of huge machine learning models, such as GPT, Llama, or large GNNs, require a vast amount of compute resources, power, storage, memory. The size of such models is growing exponentially, as is the training time and the resources required. The cost to train large foundation models has become prohibitive for everyone but very few large players. While the challenges are most visible in training, similar considerations apply to deploying and serving large foundation models for a large user base.

The proposed workshop aims to bring together AI/ML researchers, computer architects, and engineers working on a range of topics focused on training and serving large ML models. The workshop will provide a forum for presenting and exchanging new ideas and experiences in this area and to discuss and explore hardware/software techniques and tools to lower the significant barrier of entry in the computation requirements of AI foundation models.


We are seeking innovative, evolutionary and revolutionary ideas around software and hardware architectures for training such challenging models and strive to present and discuss new approaches that may lead to alternative solutions.


The workshop will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The workshop will be co-located with ISCA 2024.

Date: 30 June 2024
