CC Chair at the FCRC
The CC chair had a strong participation with three papers in this year’s ACM Federated Computing Research Conference (FCRC), a premier international event with 13 conferences and workshops (including PLDI and ISCA). The FCRC had around 2700 attendees over the course of the entire week and featured keynotes by Geoffrey Hinton and Yann LeCun, prominent machine learning researchers. Asif Khan presented our work on “Optimizing Tensor Contractions for Embedded Devices with Racetrack Memory Scratch-Pads” at the 20th ACM SIGPLAN/SIGBED International Conference on Languages, Compilers, Tools and Theory of Embedded Systems (LCTES) to about 40 attendees. Dr. Norman Rink presented our work on "TeIL: a type-safe imperative Tensor Intermediate Language" at the 6th ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Libraries, Languages, and Compilers for Array Programming (ARRAY) to around 30 attendees. Alexander Brauckmann, a student currently working with Sebastian Ertel and Andres Goens, presented our work on "A case study on machine learning for synthesizing benchmarks" at the 3rd ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Machine Learning and Programming Languages (MAPL) also to around 30 attendees. We are very excited with the exchanges that took place during the different events and with the possibilities for future work and collaboration that this publications opened.
