IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO)
co-located with PPoPP, HPCA and CC
Seoul, South Koreazw
February 12 - 16, 2022


The International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) is 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.


Abstract Submission: August 27, 2021
Paper Submission: September 3, 2021
Author Rebuttal Period: October 18 - October 22, 2021
Paper Notification: November 5, 2021
Artifact Evaluation Deadline: November 19, 2021
Artifact Evaluation Notification: December 17, 2021

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

- 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 novel and emerging programming
models, hardware platforms, and 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
- 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


Last two years CGO had a special category of papers called “Tools and
Practical Experience,” which was very successful. CGO this year will have
the same category of papers. Such a paper is subject to the same page
length guidelines, except that it must give a clear account of its
functionality and a summary about the practice experience with realistic
case studies, and describe all the supporting artifacts available.

For papers submitted in this category that present a tool it is mandatory
to submit an artifact to the Artifact Evaluation process and to be
successfully evaluated. These papers will initially be conditionally
accepted based on the condition that an artifact is submitted to the
Artifact Evaluation process and that this artifact is successfully
evaluated. Authors are not required to make their tool publicly available,
but we do require that an artifact is submitted and successfully evaluated.

Papers submitted in this category presenting practical experience are
encouraged but not required to submit an artifact to the Artifact
Evaluation process.

The selection criteria for papers in this category are:

- Originality: Papers should present CGO-related technologies applied to
real-world problems with scope or characteristics that set them apart from
previous solutions.
- Usability: The presented Tools or compilers should have broad usage or
applicability. They are expected to assist in CGO-related research, or
could be extended to investigate or demonstrate new technologies. If
significant components are not yet implemented, the paper will not be
- Availability: Preferences will be given to tools or compilers that are
freely available (at either the source or binary level). Exceptions may be
made for industry and commercial tools that cannot be made publicly
available for business reasons.
- Documentation: Publicly available tools should be presented on a web-site
giving documentation and further information about the tool.
- Test or Benchmark Repository: Tool papers must provide a suite of tests
or benchmarks. Papers that make performance claims must provide benchmarks.
- Foundations: Papers should incorporate the principles underpinning Code
Generation and Optimization (CGO). However, a thorough discussion of
theoretical foundations is not required; a summary of such should suffice.
- Artifact Evaluation: The submitted artifact must be functional and
supports the claims made in the paper. Submission of an artifact is
mandatory for papers presenting a tool.


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 process contributes to improving reproducibility in research that
should be a great concern to all of us. There is also some evidence that
papers with a supporting artifact receive higher citations than papers
without (Artifact Evaluation: Is It a Real Incentive? by B. Childers and P.

Authors of accepted papers at CGO have the option of submitting their
artifacts for evaluation within two weeks of paper acceptance. Authors of
tools papers submitted in the category of “Tools and Practical Experience
Papers” must submit an artifact. To ease the organization of the AE
committee, we kindly ask authors to indicate at the time they submit the
paper, whether they are interested in submitting an artifact. 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 AE web page. Authors of accepted papers are
encouraged, but not required, to make these materials publicly available
upon publication of the proceedings, by including them as “source
materials” in the ACM Digital Library.

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.
