Many program optimizations require exact knowledge of the sets of array elements that are referenced in or that flow between statements or procedures. Some examples are array privatization, generation of communications in distributed memory machines, or compile-time optimization of cache behavior in hierarchical memory machines. Exact array region analysis(More)
Recent compilers comprise an incremental way for converting software toward accelerators. For instance, the pgi Accelerator [14] or hmpp [3] require the use of directives. The programmer must select the pieces of source that are to be executed on the accelerator, providing optional directives that act as hints for data allocations and transfers. The(More)
Parallel and heterogeneous computing are growing in audience thanks to the increased performance brought by ubiquitous manycores and GPUs. However, available programming models, like OPENCL or CUDA, are far from being straightforward to use. As a consequence, several automated or semi-automated approaches have been proposed to automatically generate(More)
Automatic data transfer generation is a critical step for guided or automatic code generation for accelerators using distributed memories. Although good results have been achieved for loop nests, more complex control ows such as switches or while loops are generally not handled. This paper shows how to leverage the convex array regions abstraction to(More)
Due to the increasing complexity of new multiprocessor systems on chip, flexible and accurate simulators become a necessity for exploring the vast design space solution. In a streaming execution model, only a well-balanced pipeline can lead to an efficient implementation. However with dynamic applications, each stage is prone to execution time variations.(More)
Résumé La première utilisation de polyèdres pour résoudre un problème de compilation, la parallélisation automatique de boucles en présence d’appels de procédure, a été décrite et implémenté il y a près de trente ans. Le modèle polyédrique est maintenant reconnu internationalement et est en phase d’intégration dans le compilateur GCC, bien que la complexité(More)
The current microarchitecture trend leads toward heterogeneity. This evolution is driven by the end of Moore’s law and the frequency wall due to the power wall. Moreover, with the spreading of smartphone, some constraints from the mobile world drive the design of most new architectures. An immediate consequence is that an application has to be executable on(More)
