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.


Advanced Compiler Construction (FDA001) or equivalent background knowledge.


Student presentations with opposition and discussion.
Written summaries.

Written reviews of recent research papers, and written feedback
