Venue of Bench'19

2020 BenchCouncil International Symposium on Benchmarking, Measuring and Optimizing (Bench'20)

Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Nov 14-16, 2020

Welcome to the BenchCouncil Bench'20 Website!

Benchmarking, measuring, and optimizing are fundamental human activities. The organizing committee is pleased to invite you to take part in Bench'20 to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Bench’ 20 overlaps with SC 20 (Same place and same time), but it is NOT affiliated with the SC conference. The main themes of Bench'20 are benchmarking, measuring, and optimizing Big Data, AI, Block Chain, HPC, Datacenter, IoT, Edge and other things.

The Bench conference has three defining characteristics. First, it provides a high-quality, single-track forum for presenting results and discussing ideas that further the knowledge and understanding of the benchmark community as a whole. Second, it is a multi-disciplinary conference. The past conferences attracted the researchers and practitioners from the architecture, system, algorithms and application communities. Third, it includes both invited sessions and contributed sessions.

Regularly, Bench'20 will present the BenchCouncil Achievement Award (3000$), the BenchCouncil Rising Star Award (1000$), and the BenchCouncil Best Paper Award (1000$). As its duty, BenchCouncil incubates, hosts benchmarks, and further encourages reliable and reproducible research using the benchmarks from BenchCouncil or other organizations. To that end, we present the BenchCouncil Award for Excellence for Reproducible Research to the papers using all publicly available benchmarks. Each paper is awarded $100 prize, maximally up to 12 papers: 4 papers for each category of poster, spotlight, and oral.
