MARVEL at Bench'21

Sponsored and organized by the International Open Benchmark Council (BenchCouncil), the Bench conference encompasses a wide range of topics in benchmarking, measurement, evaluation methods and tools. This year it took place virtually from November 14 to November 16. 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.

The event was attended by UNS, ATOS and FORTH. At the end of the second day, a session on Tutorial-4: DataBench Toolbox for Pipeline-based selection of Big Data and AI Benchmarks took place. The Scientific and Technical Project Manager of MARVEL, Prof. Dragana Bajovic, presented the architectural blueprints for three different MARVEL use cases, as well as the initial benchmarking strategy and tools at an audience of approximately 32 people (the whole presentation can be accessed here). The event was attended by a broad international community including experts and representatives in the area of benchmarking from Europe, USA, China, and other countries as well.

All presentations and recordings of the sessions planned in the event are available here.
