Work session: Tools, Frameworks, Data sets
To kickstart the discussions, we will start with a joint working session without a dedicated speaker. The idea is to collect sets of commonly used tools, data sets, or frameworks to ease entering into research into this field. The outcome of this session should at least be turned into a living document hosted by KuVS, possibly, a publication is conceivable (similar to Dagstuhl result white papers) as a survey or a tutorial. Everybody is cordially invited to attend.
To register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no registration fee; participation is free of charge. Please do register nevertheless so that we can plan accordingly.
Procedure and Dates
- Registration deadline: Friday, September 30
- Location: At Hasso-Plattner-Institute, Griebnitzsee (travel hints) at building L, groud floor ("Eventfläche L")
What is a Fachgespräch?
Fachgespräche are a low-key version of workshops, organized (among others) by the Communication and Distributed Systems group of the Gesellschaft für Informatik. They foster community building by organising meetings on topics of current interest, with a low entry barrier. Typical target audience are people in their later Master or early PhD phase, but of course everybody is welcome. Participants are invited to present early ideas, work in progress, or also talk about work that has already been published - we deliberately do NOT require original research at a Fachgespräch. For PhD students new to the field of machine learning and networks, please also have a look at the summer school on AI in Networking Summer School.
What is Malene?
Malene is one such Fachgespräch, dedicated to the interaction of machine learning and networking. You can find earlier editions here: 2020a, 2020b, 2021 (co-located with NetSys conference).
What is special about the 3rd edition of Malene?
This time, we want to focus the discussion on how networking can assist machine learning systems and, in particular, distributed ML systems. E.g., how to ensure that distributed training is provided with the right data and runs at the right place in a network, taking all kinds of resource requirements into account.
