2nd FD-COMA Workshop at HiPEAC Conference 2013 July 17, 2012
2nd HiPEAC Workshop on Feedback-Directed Compiler Optimization for Multi-Core Architectures
part of the
Berlin, Germany, Jan 22, 2013
FD-COMA is a half-day workshop during the 8th HiPEAC Conference in Berlin, January 21-23, 2013. The workshop is loosely connected to the FP-7 project Advance, but we particularly welcome contributions from outside the project consortium.

Feedback driven optimizations have long proven to be powerful instruments for achieving better hardware utilization, but the on-going multi-core/many-core revolution opens up a whole new realm of possible applications and variations of feedback-directed compiler optimization. The increasing hardware diversity of execution platforms and the likewise increasing hardware heterogeneity of individual execution platforms make compile time resource planning less and less feasible. Dynamic compilation techniques are required, instead, that adapt application programs to the actual hardware they are running on to make best use of it. Furthermore, the abundance of compute cores allows us to run feedback-directed compiler optimizations in parallel with an application itself and, thus, to adapt a running application to the hardware it is running on or to the data it is processing, to name just a few opportunities.
This workshop aims at bringing people together that share an interest in the novel opportunities for feedback directed optimisations in the context of the emerging heterogeneous architectures.
- Feedback directed compiler optimization for multi-core architectures
- Data representation for runtime feedback information
- Performance modelling for feedback, including statistical and constraint-based techniques
- Performance measurement techniques suitable for dynamic feedback
- Exploiting feedback for improved scheduling and improved mapping
- Adaptive, feedback-controlled runtime systems for multi-core architectures
- Exploiting feedback information for energy savings
