Submit MLPerf Results
If you are interested in submitting MLPerf benchmark results, please join the appropriate working group. Note that many of our benchmarks require that your company be a member in good standing to submit.
Typically, the registration deadline is several weeks in advance of submission to ensure that all submitters are aware of benchmark requirements and to provision the necessary resources.
