2nd Workshop on
GCC Research Opportunities

January 23, 2010, Pisa, Italy

(co-located with HiPEAC 2010 Conference)

GROW workshop focuses on current challenges in research and
development of
compiler analyses and optimizations based on the free GNU Compiler
Collection (GCC). The goal of this workshop is to bring together
people from
industry and academia that are interested in conducting research based
GCC and enhancing this compiler suite for research needs. The workshop
promote and disseminate compiler research (recent, ongoing or planned)
GCC, as a robust industrial-strength vehicle that supports free and
collaborative research. The program will include an invited talk and a
discussion panel on future research and development directions of GCC.

**** Topics of interest ****

Any issue related to innovative program analysis, optimizations and
adaptation with GCC including but not limited to:

* Classical compiler analyses, transformations and optimizations
* Power-aware analyses and optimizations
* Language/Compiler/HW cooperation
* Optimizing compilation tools for heterogeneous/reconfigurable/
multicore systems
* Tools to improve compiler configurability and retargetability
* Profiling, program instrumentation and dynamic analysis
* Iterative and collective feedback-directed optimization
* Case studies and performance evaluations
* Techniques and tools to improve usability and quality of GCC
* Plugins to enhance research capabilities of GCC

**** Paper Submission Guidelines ****

Submitted papers should be original and not published or submitted for
publication elsewhere; papers similar to published or submitted work
include an explicit explanation. Papers should use the LNCS format and
should be 12 pages maximum. Please, submit via the easychair system at
GROW'10 website.

Papers will be refereed by the Program Committee and if accepted, and
if the
authors wish, will be made available on the workshop web site. Authors
the best papers from the workshop may be invited to revise their
for the journal "Transactions on HiPEAC", if the work is in
mature form.
