SCSE PhD students (Mr Hu Qinghao and Ms Zhang Meng) and faculty members (Asst Prof Zhang Tianwei and Professor Wen Yonggang), together with their collaborator (Dr Sun Peng, NTU PhD ’18), have brought home a “Distinguished Paper Award” from the 28th ACM International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS) 2023. This is the first time that NTU publishes a research paper in ASPLOS and Singapore researchers win the distinguished paper award in ASPLOS in its 28-year history.  

This paper is from a research project in S-Lab for Advanced Intelligence. It builds novel deep learning schedulers for large-scale GPU datacenters with high efficiency, transparency and low cost.
