French Compilation Days

April 2-4, 2013 near Annecy.

The “french compilation days”, sub-group of the GDR (CNRS mechanism for the animation of research) ASR (architecture, systems, and networks) and GPL (software development), were initiated in Spring 2010 as a regular meeting event to fill a gap in terms of coordination and communication in the french community for research in compilation. The first session was organized in Lyon in June 2010 to identify all researchers linked to this research topic and, since then, the compilation days are held roughly twice a year. The themes are transverse, covering all aspects of compilation and beyond, with interactions from code analysis to runtime systems, with a particular interest on tools, both mathematical and software tools.

The compilation days are usually organized as follows:

  • A total of 4 half-days of talks.
  • 1 half-day dedicated to the themes of the organizing team.
  • Talks mainly given by PhD students.
  • Open talks (panels) and tutorials.
  • Time and space for working groups.
  • In a closed and isolated place for stimulating exchanges.

The previous compilation days were organized successively in Lyon (June 2010), Aussois (December 2010), Dinard (April 2011), Saint Hippolyte (December 2011), Rennes (June 2012). The sixth edition is held near Annecy, April 2-4, 2013. All information is provided on the official web page of this event.
