ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO)

                            Call for Papers

Co-located with PPoPP, HPCA and CC
Montreal, Canada
February 25 - March 1, 2023

The International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) is 
a premier venue to bring together researchers and practitioners working 
at the interface of hardware and software on a wide range of 
optimization and code generation techniques and related issues. The 
conference spans the spectrum from purely static to fully dynamic 
approaches, and from pure software-based methods to specific 
architectural features and support for code generation and optimization.


Paper Submission: September 2, 2022
Author Rebuttal Period: October 26 - October 28, 2022
Paper Notification: November 7, 2022
Artifact Evaluation Deadline: November 28, 2022
Artifact Evaluation Notification: December 20, 2022


Original contributions are solicited on, but not limited to, the 
following topics:

* Code Generation, Translation, Transformation, and Optimization for 
performance, energy, virtualization, portability, security, or 
reliability concerns, and architectural support
* Efficient execution of dynamically typed and higher-level languages
* Optimization and code generation for emerging programming models, 
platforms, domain-specific languages
* Dynamic/static, profile-guided, feedback-directed, and machine 
learning based optimization
* Static, Dynamic, and Hybrid Analysis for performance, energy, memory 
locality, throughput or latency, security, reliability, or functional 
* Program characterization methods
* Efficient profiling and instrumentation techniques; architectural support
* Novel and efficient tools
* Compiler design, practice and experience
* Compiler abstraction and intermediate representations
* Vertical integration of language features, representations, 
optimizations, and runtime support for parallelism
* Solutions that involve cross-layer (HW/OS/VM/SW) design and integration
* Deployed dynamic/static compiler and runtime systems for general 
purpose, embedded system and Cloud/HPC platforms
* Parallelism, heterogeneity, and reconfigurable architectures
* Optimizations for heterogeneous or specialized targets, GPUs, SoCs, CGRA
* Compiler support for vectorization, thread extraction, task 
scheduling, speculation, transaction, memory management, data 
distribution and synchronization


In recent years CGO had a special category of papers called “Tools and 
Practical Experience,” which was very successful. CGO this year will 
have the same category of papers. Such a paper is subject to the same 
page length guidelines, except that it must give a clear account of its 
functionality and a summary about the practice experience with realistic 
case studies, and describe all the supporting artifacts available.

For papers submitted in this category that present a tool, it is 
mandatory to submit an artifact to the Artifact Evaluation process and 
to be successfully evaluated. These papers will initially be 
conditionally accepted based on the condition that an artifact is 
submitted to the Artifact Evaluation process and that this artifact is 
successfully evaluated. Authors are not required to make their tool 
publicly available, but we do require that an artifact is submitted and 
successfully evaluated.

Papers submitted in this category presenting practical experience are 
encouraged but not required to submit an artifact to the Artifact 
Evaluation process.

The selection criteria for papers in this category are:
* Originality: Papers should present CGO-related technologies applied to 
real-world problems with scope or characteristics that set them apart 
from previous solutions.
* Usability: The presented Tools or compilers should have broad usage or 
applicability. They are expected to assist in CGO-related research, or 
could be extended to investigate or demonstrate new technologies. If 
significant components are not yet implemented, the paper will not be 
* Documentation: The tool or compiler should be presented on a web-site 
giving documentation and further information about the tool.
* Benchmark Repository: A suite of benchmarks for testing should be 
* Availability: Preferences will be given to tools or compilers that are 
freely available (at either the source or binary level). Exceptions may 
be made for industry and commercial tools that cannot be made publicly 
available for business reasons.
* Foundations: Papers should incorporate the principles underpinning 
Code Generation and Optimization (CGO). However, a thorough discussion 
of theoretical foundations is not required; a summary of such should 
* Artifact Evaluation: The submitted artifact must be functional and 
supports the claims made in the paper. Submission of an artifact is 
mandatory for papers presenting a tool.


The Artifact Evaluation process is run by a separate committee whose 
task is to assess how the artifacts support the work described in the 
papers. This process contributes to improved reproducibility in research 
that should be a great concern to all of us. There is also some evidence 
that papers with a supporting artifact receive higher citations than 
papers without (Artifact Evaluation: Is It a Real Incentive? by B. 
Childers and P. Chrysanthis).

Authors of accepted papers at CGO have the option of submitting their 
artifacts for evaluation within two weeks of paper acceptance. To ease 
the organization of the AE committee, we kindly ask authors to indicate 
at the time they submit the paper, whether they are interested in 
submitting an artifact. Papers that go through the Artifact Evaluation 
process successfully will receive a seal of approval printed on the 
papers themselves. Additional information is available on the CGO AE web 
page. Authors of accepted papers are encouraged, but not required, to 
make these materials publicly available upon publication of the 
proceedings, by including them as “source materials” in the ACM Digital 

Authors should carefully consider the difference in focus with the 
co-located conferences when deciding where to submit a paper. CGO will 
make the proceedings freely available via the ACM DL platform during the 
period from two weeks before to two weeks after the conference. This 
option will facilitate easy access to the proceedings by conference 
attendees, and it will also enable the community at large to experience 
the excitement of learning about the latest developments being presented 
in the period surrounding the event itself.
