Venue of Bench'21

2021 BenchCouncil International Symposium on Benchmarking, Measuring and Optimizing (Bench 2021)

Nov 14-16, 2021

Submission Site

There are three submission opportunities, and the reviewing process is double-blind. Upon acceptance, papers will be scheduled for publication in the BenchCouncil Transactions on Benchmarks, Standards, and Evaluation (TBench) and presentation at the Bench'21 conference. All accepted and eligible papers will be considered, by a panel of reviewers, for the BenchCouncil Best Paper Award and the BenchCouncil Award for Excellence for Reproducible Research.

Papers must be submitted in PDF. For a full paper, the page limit is 12 double column pages in TBench format (All research article page limits do not include references and author biographies). For a short paper, the page limit is 8 double column pages in TBench format, not including references and author biographies. The submissions will be judged based on the merit of the ideas rather than the length.

At least one author must pre-register for the symposium, and at least one author must attend the symposium to present the paper. Papers for which no author is pre-registered will be removed from the proceedings.
