Code Generation and Optimisation (CGO) conference

The International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) is a premier conference which brings together researchers and practitioners working at the interface of hardware and software on a wide range of optimization and code generation techniques. Co-located with the HPCA, PPoPP, and CC conferences, this year CGO will be held in Edinburgh and the ExCALIBUR xDSL project have been heavily involved in organising CGO and hosting it in Edinburgh.

Furthermore, Nick Brown from the xDSL project will be giving a keynote at the 3rd International Workshop on Extreme Heterogeneity Solutions entitled Domain-specific abstractions: A panacea or false promise for programming extreme heterogeneous architectures where he will explore the work undertaken in the xDSL project in developing a common ecosystem for DSL development that can enable automatic transformation and optimsiation targeting a variety of architectures including GPUs, FPGAs and CGRAs.

Given the challenges associated with programming exascale supercomputers, there is a strong potential for compiler optimisations and transformations to play an important role in automating the tricky, low level details of parallelism and performance. Therefore advances in this field are very important for exascale and the wider ExCALIBUR programme, and there is an exciting programme of keynotes, workshops, tutorials, and paper presentations during the conference, with the full schedule available here.
