January 27, 2008, Goteborg, Sweden

(co-located with HiPEAC 2008 Conference)


The rapid rate of architectural change has placed enormous pressure on compiler writers to keep pace with microprocessor evolution. This problem is compounded by the current trend to have multi-cores and multi-threading which makes such systems increasingly difficult to target. Also, current methods of designing computer systems will no longer be feasible in 10-15 years time; what is needed are new innovative approaches to architecture design that scale both with advances in underlying technology and with future application domains.

In recent years, several papers have been published showing great potential in constructing compilers and architectures using approaches such as machine learning and search.

The purpose of this workshop is to promote new ideas and to present recent developments in compiler and architecture design using machine learning, statistical approaches, and search in order to enhance their performance, scalability, and adaptability.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Machine Learning, Statistical Approaches, or Search applied to

  • Feedback-Directed Compilation
  • Auto-tuning Programs + Language Extensions
  • Library Generators
  • Iterative Compilation
  • Dynamic Compilation/Adaptive Execution
  • Parallel Compiler Optimizations
  • Low-power Optimizations
  • Simulation
  • Performance Models
  • Adaptive Processor and System Architecture
  • Design Space Exploration
  • Other Topics relevant to Intelligent and Adaptive Compilers/ Architectures
