Invited Lecture: Dr. Uday Bondhugula (Thursday 7, 9:00 to 10:30)
Title: Reusable Infrastructure for Optimization in Domain-Specific and General-Purpose Compilers
Abstract: Challenges in compiler parallelization and optimization for the multicore era can broadly be classified into two categories: one that makes progress on optimization support in general-purpose compilers for high-performance languages (eg. LLVM, GCC, other commercial production compilers, and research compilers), and the other in building domain-specific compilers/code generators with an objective to provide effective automatic parallelization, optimization, and programmer productivity. This talk will motivate the need to build optimization infrastructure that benefits and can be shared by both approaches, and discuss possible ways to accomplish this. Two particular example domains will be presented as case studies: (1) image processing pipelines, and (2) numerical solvers for partial differential equations. Short video demos will also be performed.
Uday Bondhugula is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Automation at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore, India. His research interests are in programming and compiler/runtime technologies for multicore architectures with an emphasis on high performance and automatic parallelization, the design of domain-specific compilers, and the polyhedral compiler framework. Before joining IISc, he was with the Advanced Compiler Technologies group at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Ohio State University, and his B-Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.
