2020 BenchCouncil International Symposium on Financial Technology (FinTech 20)

Qingdao, Shandong, China
Jul 1-2, 2020

Welcome to 2020 BenchCouncil International Symposium on Financial Technology (FinTech 20)!

The organizing committee is pleased to invite you to take part in 2020 BenchCouncil International Symposium on Financial Technology (FinTech 20) to be held in Qingdao, a beautiful seaside city in China. The main theme of FinTech 20 is AI and Computer Sciences for Finance. FinTech 20 is a part of 2020 BenchCouncil Federated Intelligent Computing and Block Chain Conferences (FICC 2020). This conference organization retains the advantages of a smaller conference, while at the same time, facilitates communication, collaboration, and interplay among different disciplines. Hereby, FinTech 20 is for the communication, collaboration, and interplay among the communities of Financeļ¼ŒAI, and Computer Sciences.

Since its founding, BenchCouncil has two fundamental responsibilities. On one hand, it encourages data-driven, intelligence-inspired, and benchmark-based quantitative approaches to tackle multi-disciplinary challenges. On the other hand, BenchCouncil incubates benchmark projects and hosts the BenchCouncil benchmark projects, and further encourages reliable and reproducible research using those benchmarks. To that end, we present the BenchCouncil Award for Excellence for Reproducible Research to the papers related with those projects (each paper $100 prize, maximally up to 15 papers for FinTech 20). We welcome the industry leaders as sponsors to provide the testbed and the honorariums for the above awards.

In addition, we will invite influential speakers from around the world.
