Best Practices in Software Benchmarking 2016 (#bench16)
Wednesday April 20 2016
King's College London

For computer scientists and software engineers, benchmarking (evaluating the
running time of a piece of software, or the performance of a piece of hardware)
is a common method for evaluating new techniques. However, there is little
agreement on how benchmarking should  be carried out, how to control for
confounding variables, how to analyse latency data, or  how to aid the
repeatability of experiments. This free workshop will be a venue for computer
scientists and research software engineers to discuss their current best
practices and  future directions.
