2020 BenchCouncil International Federated Intelligent Computing and Block Chain Conferences (FICC)

Embracing intelligent computing and block chain, International Open Benchmark Council (BenchCouncil) will organize 2020 BenchCouncil International Federated Intelligent Computing and Block Chain Conferences (FICC) on Jun 29-Jul 3, 2020. FICC 2020 assembles a spectrum of affiliated research conferences into a week-long coordinated meeting held at a common time in a common place, consisting of five individual conferences--- Symposium on Intelligent Computers (IC 20), Symposium on Block Chain (BChain 20), Symposium on Intelligent Medical Technology (MedTech 20), Symposium on Financial Technology (FinTech 20), and Symposium on Education Technology (EduTech 20). The technical program for each affiliated conference is independently administered, with each responsible for its own meeting's structure and content, while the accepted papers will be published on the same proceeding, published by Springer LNCS (Indexed by EI, Pending for approval).

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 the BenchCouncil benchmark projects or incubator benchmark projects. Hereby, the goal of FICC 2020 is to foster the communication, collaboration, and interplay among the communities of artificial intelligence, computer sciences, finance, medicine, and education, and propose benchmark-based quantitative approaches to tackle multi-disciplinary challenges. To that end, we present the BenchCouncil Award for Excellence for Reproduceable Research to the papers related with those projects (each paper $100 prize, maximally up to 75 papers). We welcome the industry leaders as sponsors to provide the testbed and the honorariums for the above awards.


Important Dates for Submitting Papers:

Submission Deadline: April 15, 2020
