ABOUT Bench
-----------
Evolving from nine BPOE/SDBA workshops in conjunction with ASPLOS,
VLDB, and ICS, Bench is an international multidisciplinary conference
on benchmarks, standards, data sets, evaluation, and
optimization. Bench 2023 is the fifteenth edition. The Bench
conference encompasses a wide range of topics in benchmarks, datasets,
metrics, indexes, measurement, evaluation, optimization, supporting
methods and tools, and industry best practices in computer science,
AI, medicine, finance, education, management, etc. Bench’s
multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary emphasis provides an ideal
environment for developers and researchers from different areas and
communities to discuss practical and theoretical work.

Bench 2023 invites manuscripts describing original work in the above
areas and topics. All accepted papers will be presented at the Bench
2023 conference and published by Springer (LNCS, Indexed by EI). In
addition, at least one of the authors of the TBench articles published
during the last year is requested to present their work at the Bench
conference.

Regularly, the Bench conference will present the BenchCouncil
Achievement Award ($3000), the BenchCouncil Rising Star Award ($1000),
the BenchCouncil Best Paper Award ($1000), and the BenchCouncil
Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation Awards in Computer Architecture
($1000) and in other areas ($1000). This year, the BenchCouncil
Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation Award includes two tracks:
computer architecture and other areas. Among the submissions of each
track, four candidates will be selected as finalists. They will be
invited to give a 30-minute presentation at the Bench 2023 conference
and contribute research articles to the BenchCouncil Transactions on
Benchmarks, Standards and Evaluation (TBench). Finally, for each
track, one among the four will receive the award for each track, which
carries a $1,000 honorarium.

With generous support from BenchCouncil, Bench 2023 will offer travel
grants for students to defray a portion of their travel cost. The size
and number of these grants will vary depending on funding
availability, the number of student applicants, and their respective
priority. Grant awards will be made before the early registration
deadline; expenses will be reimbursed after the conference; grant
recipients will be asked to submit original receipts to verify their
expenditures as well as a 1-page summary of their involvement during
the conference. While we encourage all in need of a travel grant to
apply, the selection process will give higher priority to students who
would otherwise not be able to attend the conference. We strongly
encourage applications from students that belong to under-represented
groups.

which no author is pre-registered will be removed from the
proceedings.

Formatting Instructions

Please make sure your submission satisfies ALL of the following
requirements: All authors and affiliation information must be
anonymized. The paper must be submitted in printable PDF format (LNCS
format). Please number the pages of your submission. The submission
must be formatted for black-and-white printers. Please make sure your
figures are readable when printed in black and white. The submission
must describe novel, unpublished work that is not currently under
review of any other conference venue or journal.
