2016 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Code Generation and 
Optimization (CGO)
(Co-located with HPCA, PPoPP, CC, and EuroLLVM)
Barcelona, Spain
March 12-18, 2016

The International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) 
provides a premier venue to bring together researchers and practitioners 
working at the interface of hardware and software on a wide range of 
optimization and code generation techniques and related issues. The 
conference spans the spectrum from purely static to fully dynamic 
approaches, and from pure software-based methods to specific 
architectural features and support for code generation and optimization.

Original contributions are solicited on, but not limited to, the 
following topics:

Code Generation, Translation, Transformation, and Optimization
* For performance, energy, virtualization, portability, security, or 
reliability concerns, and architectural support.
* Efficient execution of dynamically typed and higher-level languages.
* Optimization and code generation for emerging programming models, 
platforms, domain-specific languages.
* Dynamic/static, profile-guided, feedback-directed, and machine 
learning based optimization.

Static, Dynamic, and Hybrid Analysis
* For performance, energy, memory locality, throughput or latency, 
security, reliability, or functional debugging.
* Program characterization methods.
* Efficient profiling and instrumentation techniques; architectural support.
* Novel and efficient tools.

Compiler design, practice and experience
* Compiler abstraction and intermediate representations.
* Vertical integration of language features, representations, 
optimizations, and runtime support for parallelism.
* Solutions that involve cross-layer (HW/OS/VM/SW) design and integration.
* Deployed dynamic/static compiler and runtime systems for general 
purpose, embedded system and Cloud/HPC platforms.

Parallelism, heterogeneity, and reconfigurable architectures
* Optimizations for heterogeneous or specialized targets, GPUs, SoCs, CGRA.
* Compiler-support for vectorization, thread extraction, task 
scheduling, speculation, transaction, memory management, data 
distribution and synchronization.

Authors should carefully consider the difference in focus with the 
co-located conferences when deciding where to submit a paper. CGO will 
make the proceedings freely available via the ACM DL platform during the 
period from two weeks before to two weeks after the conference. This 
option will facilitate easy access to the proceedings by conference 
attendees, and it will also enable the community at large to experience 
the excitement of learning about the latest developments being presented 
in the period surrounding the event itself.

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to formally submit their 
supporting materials to the Artifact Evaluation process. The Artifact 
Evaluation process is run by a separate committee whose task is to 
assess how the artifacts support the work described in the papers. This 
submission is voluntary and will not influence the final decision 
regarding the papers. Papers that go through the Artifact Evaluation 
process successfully will receive a seal of approval printed on the 
papers themselves. Additional information is available on the CGO AEC 
web page.
Authors of accepted papers are encouraged to make these materials 
publicly available upon publication of the proceedings, by including 
them as "source materials" in the ACM Digital Library.
