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!

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). 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 benchmark projects and hosts the BenchCouncil benchmark projects, and further encourages reliable and reproducible research using the BenchCouncil benchmarks. To that end, Bench'20 will present the BenchCouncil Award for Excellence for Reproducible Research to the papers related with those projects (each paper $100 prize, maximally up to 10 papers).

In addition, we will invite influential speakers from around the world.
