Course plan

Lectures

This is an advanced seminar, based on writing reviews for
technical papers taken from recent compiler conferences
and student presentations.
There is one lecture on reviewing of technical papers.

Recommended for

Graduate (ECSEL, CUGS, ...) students interested in the areas of compilers, computer architecture, parallel processing,
or embedded systems.

The course was last given

HT1/2003.

Goals

The seminar gives insights into currently hot topics in compiler
technology by taking up recent research papers from high-end conferences (PLDI, POPL, CC, CGO, LCTES, SCOPES, ...).
A secondary goal is to practise presentations, opposition, and
writing reviews of such papers for an imaginary journal on compilers
and programming languages.

Prerequisites

Organization

Student presentations with opposition and discussion.
Written summaries.

Written reviews of recent research papers, and written feedback
for reviews written by other participants, organized
via email.

The number of participants is limited to about 16.

The list of papers will be announced 2 weeks before
the course starts.
