Call for Papers

BenchCouncil International Symposium on Financial Technology (FinTech 20) will 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), joint with Symposium on Intelligent Medical Technology (MedTech 20), Symposium on Intelligent Computers (IC 20), Symposium on Chips (Chips 20), Symposium on Evaluation, Simulation, and Test (ESTest 20), Symposium on Education Technology (EduTech 20), and Symposium on Block Chain (BChain 20). 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 Finance, AI, 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 projects, and further encourages reliable and reproducible research using the BenchCouncil benchmark projects or incubator benchmark projects. 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.
