What: Fourth LLVM Performance Workshop at CGO
When: Sunday February 23th, 2020
Where: San Diego, CA, USA

Last day to submit: Sunday Jan 12, 2020 (Anywhere On Earth)

The Fourth LLVM Performance Workshop will be held at CGO 2020 (https://cgo-conference.github.io/cgo2020). The workshop is co-located with CC, HPCA, and PPoPP. If you are interested in attending the workshop, please register at the CGO website (https://cgo-conference.github.io/cgo2020/workshop)

Call for Speakers
We invite speakers from academia and industry to present their work on the following list of topics (including and not limited to:)

     - Compilation and interpretation techniques benefitting from LLVM,
     - Performance optimizations, code-size optimizations and binary instrumentation techniques using LLVM,
     - Improvements to runtime libraries developed under llvm-infrastructure e.g., libc++, libc++-abi,
     - Improving the security of generated code using compilation techniques,
     - Any tools developed with LLVM (or subprojects) for performance analysis,
     - compiler flags, annotations and remarks to understand and improve performance,
     - any other topic related to improving and maintaining the performance and quality of LLVM generated code.

While the primary focus of the workshop is on these topics, we welcome any submissions related to the LLVM compiler infrastructure, its sub-projects (clang, lldb, openmp, Polly etc.), as well as its use in industry and academia.

We are looking for:

     - keynote speakers,
     - technical presentations:
     - tutorials,
     - panels,
     - BOFs.

Proposals should provide enough information for the review committee to be able to judge the quality of the submission. Proposals can be submitted under the form of an extended abstract (1-2 pages) or slides. Proposals should be submitted to Easychair LLVM-CGO 2020 (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=llvmcgo2020). The deadline for receiving submissions is January 12, 2019 (Anywhere on Earth). Speakers will be notified of acceptance or rejection by January 17, 2020.

This year we will have a GSoC discussion round (given that there might be students) and
a "ask LLVM Developers anything" session to make it more useful to students and early compiler developers. 

In case of any queries please reach out to the workshop organizers:
Johannes Doerfert <jdoerfert at anl.gov>, Sebastian Pop<spop at amazon.com>, Aditya Kumar <aditya7 at fb.com>


Panel sessions are guided discussions about a specific topic. The panel consists of ~3 developers who discuss a topic through prepared questions from a moderator. The audience is also given the opportunity to ask questions of the panel.

Birds of a Feather (BoF)
A BoF session, an informal meeting at conferences, where the attendees group together based on a shared interest and carry out discussions without any pre-planned agenda.

Technical Talks
These 20-30 minute talks cover all topics from core infrastructure talks, to project's using LLVM's infrastructure. Attendees will take away technical information that could be pertinent to their project or general interest.

Tutorials are 50-60 minute sessions that dive down deep into a technical topic. Expect in depth examples and explanations.
What types of people attend?
Active developers of projects in the LLVM Umbrella (LLVM core, Clang, LLDB, libc++, compiler_rt, klee, lld, etc).
Anyone interested in using these as part of another project.
Students and Researchers.
Compiler, programming language, and runtime enthusiasts.
Those interested in using compiler and toolchain technology in novel and interesting ways.
