2018 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization

February 24-28, 2018

Vienna, Austria



(Co-located with HPCA, PPoPP and CC)


The International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) provides a premier venue to bring together researchers and practitioners working at the interface of hardware and software on a wide range of optimization and code generation techniques and related issues. The conference spans the spectrum from purely static to fully dynamic approaches, and from pure software-based methods to specific architectural features and support for code generation and optimization.

Original contributions are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:


– Code Generation, Translation, Transformation, and Optimization for performance, energy, virtualization, portability, security, or reliability concerns, and architectural support

– Efficient execution of dynamically typed and higher-level languages

– Optimization and code generation for emerging programming models, platforms, domain-specific languages

– Dynamic/static, profile-guided, feedback-directed, and machine learning based optimization

– Static, Dynamic, and Hybrid Analysis for performance, energy, memory locality, throughput or latency, security, reliability, or functional debugging

– Program characterization methods

– Efficient profiling and instrumentation techniques; architectural support

– Novel and efficient tools

– Compiler design, practice and experience

– Compiler abstraction and intermediate representations

– Vertical integration of language features, representations optimizations, and runtime support for parallelism

– Solutions that involve cross-layer (HW/OS/VM/SW) design and integration

– Deployed dynamic/static compiler and runtime systems for general purpose, embedded system and Cloud/HPC platforms

– Parallelism, heterogeneity, and reconfigurable architectures

– Optimizations for heterogeneous or specialized targets, GPUs, SoCs, CGRA

– Compiler support for vectorization, thread extraction, task scheduling, speculation, transaction, memory management, data distribution and synchronization
