The Bench conference encompasses a wide range of topics in benchmarking, measurement, evaluation methods and tools. Bench’s multi-disciplinary emphasis provides an ideal environment for developers and researchers from the architecture, system, algorithm, and application communities to discuss practical and theoretical work covering workload characterization, benchmarks and tools, evaluation, measurement and optimization, and dataset generation.
Manuscripts describing original work in the area of benchmarking, evaluation methods and tools in Big Data, AI, HPC and Computing Architectures on one of the following topics are welcome.
- Benchmark and standard specifications, implementations, and validations.
- Dataset Generation and Analysis.
- Workload characterization, quantitative measurement, design and evaluation studies.
- Methodologies, abstractions, metrics, algorithms and tools.
- Measurement and evaluation.
