First International Workshop on

GCC Research Opportunities

Held in conjunction with:
the 4th International Conference on High-Performance Embedded Architectures and Compilers (HiPEAC)
Paphos, CYPRUS, January 25-28, 2009

GROW focuses on current challenges in research and development of compiler analyses and optimizations based on the free GNU Compiler Collection (GCC). The goal of this workshop is to bring together people from industry and academia that are interested in conducting research based on GCC and enhancing the compiler suite to better support embedded and parallel/multicore systems. The workshop will promote and disseminate compiler research (recent, ongoing or planned) with GCC, as a robust industrial-strength vehicle that supports free and collaborative research.

The topics of the workshop include any issue related to innovative compiler analysis and/or optimizations with GCC targeting embedded and parallel/multicore systems, including but not limited to:
