The 16th Workshop on Interaction between Compilers and Computer Architectures


Held in conjunction with HPCA 2012




Effective compilers allow more efficient execution of applications on a given computer architecture. Conversely, well-conceived architectural features can support more effective compiler optimization techniques. Good interaction between compilers and computer architectures is key to successful design of highly efficient and effective computer systems. This workshop is to promote new ideas and present recent developments in compiler techniques and computer architectures whose synergy enhances both capabilities and efficiency. Papers are solicited on any aspect of interaction between compilers and architectures in the design of microprocessors, multicores, parallel processing systems, and embedded systems.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

The program will feature a keynote speaker and technical paper sessions comprising approximately ten papers.

Schedule and Submission Procedure:


The program committee invites authors to submit up to 5000 words, in IEEE Conference format, up to 8 pages of manuscript, describing original, unpublished recent results related to the workshop theme. Submission must be in the pdf format and emailed to The submission should include the contact author's email address on the front page. Accepted papers will be archived in the IEEE digital library. Three or four outstanding papers presented at INTERACT-16 will be published in the International Journal Parallel Programming after revision.
