UD Hosts International Computing Language Conference

The 22nd International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing was held at the University of Delaware from October 8-10, 2009. 

Attended by some 75 researchers and practitioners, the event was hosted by the departments of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) and Computer & Information Sciences (CIS). 

The conference was co-chaired by professors Guang Gao (ECE) and Lori Pollack (CIS), together with assistant professors John Cavazos (CIS) and Xiaoming Li (ECE) as the organizers.  Representatives of seven countries--Canada, France, Japan, Spain, Taiwan, the U.K., and the U.S.--served on the program committee.

Held since 1988, the annual workshop covers all aspects of languages, compiler techniques, run-time environments, and compiler-related performance evaluation for parallel and high-performance computing.  This year’s program offered a variety of presentations, including keynote addresses, short and full-length papers, and tutorials.

Paper submissions for the 2009 conference were received from 15 countries, and representatives from several funding agencies attended the meeting. “LCPC is a highly influential forum in the compiler and high-performance community,” said Li, “and we were happy to host LCPC’09 at our university. Its success would not have been possible without the efforts of all of the organizers.”

“The workshop is an excellent example of collaboration between the departments of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer & Information Sciences here at the University,” said ECE chairperson Kenneth Barner.  “Computing issues have become increasingly complex and interdisciplinary, requiring the expertise and input of both computer scientists and engineers. I’m really pleased that we were able to work together to host this important meeting, which featured renowned speakers from across the globe.”
