Tensor computations present significant performance challenges that impact a wide spectrum of applications. Efforts on improving the performance of tensor computations include exploring data layout, execution scheduling, and parallelism in common tensor kernels. This work presents a benchmark suite for arbitrary-order sparse tensor kernels using state-of-the-art tensor formats: coordinate (COO) and hierarchical coordinate (HiCOO). It demonstrates a set of reference tensor kernel implementations and some observations on Intel CPUs and NVIDIA GPUs. The full paper can be referred to at http://arxiv.org/abs/2001.00660 .
