The Fifth Workshop on the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure in HPC

Workshop held in conjunction with SC18 - Monday, November 12, 2018 - Dallas, Texas, USA


LLVM, winner of the 2012 ACM Software System Award, has become an integral part of the software-development ecosystem for optimizing compilers, dynamic-language execution engines, source-code analysis and transformation tools, debuggers and linkers, and a whole host of programming-language and toolchain-related components. Now heavily used in both academia and industry, where it allows for rapid development of production-quality tools, LLVM is increasingly used in work targeted at high-performance computing. Research in, and implementation of, program analysis, compilation, execution, and profiling has clearly benefited from the availability of a high-quality, freely-available infrastructure on which to build. This workshop will focus on recent developments, from both academia and industry, that build on LLVM to advance the state of the art in high-performance computing.

In cooperation with:

Held in conjunction with SC18: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis


This workshop will feature contributed papers and invited talks focusing on recent developments, from both academia and industry, that build on LLVM to advance the state of the art in high-performance computing.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

The workshop will hold a lightning-talk session. Please contribute to making this session both vibrant and informative! An abstract and one-page summary are required for consideration.


Please see the SC18 home page for registration deadlines and other information associated with the parent event.
