2021 BenchCouncil International Symposium on Benchmarking, Measuring and Optimizing (Bench'21)
Nov 14-16, 2021
Benchmarks, Data, Standards, Measurements, and Optimizations are fundamental human activities and assets. The Bench conference has two essential duties: promote data or benchmark-based quantitative approaches to tackle multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary challenges; connect architecture, system, data management, algorithm, and application communities to better co-design for the inherent workload characterizations.
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 benchmarks, data, standards, measurements, and optimizations community as a whole. Second, it is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary conference. The past meetings attracted researchers and practitioners from the architecture, system, algorithm, and application communities. Third, it includes both invited sessions and contributed sessions.
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.
Regularly, the Bench conference will present the BenchCouncil Achievement Award ($3000), the BenchCouncil Rising Star Award ($1000), the BenchCouncil Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation Award ($1000)，and the BenchCouncil Best Paper Award ($1000). To encourage reliable and reproducible research using the benchmarks from all organizations, the Bench conference presents the BenchCouncil Award for Excellence for Reproducible Research to the papers using publicly available benchmarks. Each article receives a $100 prize, maximally up to 12 articles. We welcome the industry leaders as sponsors to provide the testbed and the honorariums for the above awards.
