Call for Participation

(by invitation only)

We cordially invite you to participate in the 12th International Workshop on Compilers for Parallel Computers (CPC), organized by the Computer Architecture Group of the University of A Coruña. The workshop will be held from  9 to 11 January 2006 and will be located  in A Coruña, Spain.

CPC 2006 is the twelfth workshop in a series that started in 1989 in Oxford, England. It has been organized every one and a half years since and the other workshops have been located in Paris (1990), Vienna (1992), Delft (1993), Malaga (1995), Aachen (1996), Linkoping (1998), Aussois (2000), Edinburgh (2001), Amsterdam (2003) and Chiemsee (2004).

The main goal of the workshop is to bring researchers in compilation and associated areas together in an informal setting and a relaxed atmosphere in order to exchange ideas and to foster collaboration. This workshop covers all area of parallelism and optimization; from embedded systems through to large scale parallel systems and computational grids. Thus, topics of interest include, but are not limited to,

  • Parallel processing and automatic parallelization
  • Optimizations for exploiting the memory hierarchy
  • Optimizations for exploiting Instruction Level Parallelism
  • Optimizations for power consumption
  • Profile directed and feedback assisted compilation
  • High level specification and MatLab compilation
  • Architectural models and performance prediction
  • Just-in-time compilation
  • Dynamic and runtime optimization
  • Program analysis frameworks and tools
  • Backend code generation and optimization
  • Runtime systems
In principle, any topic that is of interest to a compiler designer is of interest for this workshop. To enable participation by as wide a range of research groups as possible, we will restrict contributions to a maximum of two papers per group.



Proceedings and Journal Special Issue:

In accordance with the previous events, papers need not be unpublished but should reflect your current research and interests. Local proceedings will be printed and distributed to the participants. Selected original papers presented in the workshop will be published in a special issue of "Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience".


Important dates:

July 15 Submission of presentation titles and abstracts
July 31 Firm deadline extension for submission of titles and abstracts
November 12 Author registration deadline
November 15 Full papers submission deadline
December 9 Registration deadline for rest of attendees
January 9 - 11 Workshop
