Compiler, Architecture and Tools Conference (CATC) 2017

When: Dec 4, 2017
Where: Haifa, Israel
Type: Conference

HiPEACThe interaction between advanced compilation techniques, modern processor and computing architectures, and associated tools continues to face new challenges and opportunities. Traditional demands to increase performance, reduce power consumption, and reduce time to market now apply to heterogeneous, virtualized and diverse user-experience environments. Extensive data and task parallelism are being exposed by new programming environments such as Halide, Swift*, and OpenMP* version 4.0, relying on innovative architectures, compilers, binary translation, and runtime tools. This workshop will focus on these exciting new directions and how they are influencing the architecture and compilation domain. The conference program will be held in a format similar to that held last year, leaving time for networking and presentations.


The main focus of this workshop is the interaction of compiler technologies, processor and computing architectures, and tools to address the latest programming environments and demands. The topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Compilers, runtime, and tools for modern server, client, mobile, and embedded systems
  • Compiler or hardware support for hiding memory and I/O latencies
  • Compilation to hardware
  • Dynamic translation and optimization
  • Heterogeneous architectures and computational models
  • GPU, accelerator, and coprocessor architectures
  • Power, performance, and monitoring tools for application behavior understanding
  • Optimizations for parallel programs, algorithms, and applications
  • Systems, especially related to interactions with compilers or architecture
  • Compilation, system, and hardware advances relating to security and computational learning

Invited Speakers

We are delighted to have Professor Vivek Sarkar from Rice University and Dr. Tatiana Shpeisman from Intel Labs as our keynote speakers, along with Efi Herbst and Yaron Keren from Ceemple Software (makers of Zapcc* software) as our invited speakers.


Authors should submit an abstract of their contributions by email to Gadi Haber ( Submissions must include an abstract of 100-300 words and contact information. The authors are encouraged to provide related documents with additional details on their research work, such as an extended abstract, paper, and/or links. Abstracts and eventually presentations will be provided online at the conference webpage. The conference does not include proceedings, however, with author approval, papers may appear online and extended versions of the best papers may be included in a special issue of IJPP.In addition, authors may submit papers presented in recent top-tier conferences.
