The goal of the workshop was to evaluate the state of the art and to point out the major directions of research in code generation for the coming years. Most of the contributions were arranged around four topics:

  1. Tools and techniques for code selection
  2. Code generation for parallel architectures
  3. Register allocation and phase ordering problems
  4. Formal models and validation

Besides these, there were contributions on some new topics such as dynamic compilation or object-oriented methods for code generation.

The workshop had 36 participants, 20 from Europe and 16 from the USA.


In the series Dagstuhl Reports each Dagstuhl Seminar and Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop is documented. The seminar organizers, in cooperation with the collector, prepare a report that includes contributions from the participants' talks together with a summary of the seminar.
