National Compiler Infrastructure Birds of a Feather at PLDI '97
Sunday, June 15th, 7:00 PM
Alexis Parker Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada
(Conference Hotel, Room to be announced)
The time has finally arrived! After many proposals and reports from the
compiler community, a common compiler infrastructure is now being funded by
ARPA and NSF to help compiler researchers. The purpose of this infrastructure
This BOF will describe the infrastructure that is being funded. Dr. Jack
Davidson (University of Virginia) and Dr. Monica Lam (Stanford University) will
describe their components of the infrastructure. Then, the floor will be
opened up for comments and input from the compiler community.
- Allow compiler researchers to concentrate on their areas of interest
without having to reinvent common, standard components of compilers.
- Accelerate the development of compilers and system software for new
machines and architectures.
- Allow compiler researchers to make fair comparisons with the work of
others, without reimplementing previous work.
- Allow researchers and early users to test new compiler techniques
and algorithms within the context of a robust compiler with multiple
front-ends and back-ends.
- Improve education in compilers by providing a stable, robust model
- Facilitate the transfer of good compiler research ideas to computer
and compiler industries.
For this infrastructure to work, input is needed from you!!!
Check the bulletin board at PLDI for more details!
