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

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 emerging programming models, platforms,
domain-specific languages.
– Dynamic/static, profile-guided, feedback-directed, and machine learning based

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

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.
