LLVM Compiler Social - Thursday April 14, 2016

Dear all,

we will be organizing a "Zurich LLVM Social" next Thursday
and invite you to attend.

# Registration


# What

A social meetup to discuss compilation and code generation questions with a focus on LLVM, clang, Polly and related projects.

Our primary focus is to provide a venue (and drinks & snacks) that enables free discussions between interested people without imposing
an agenda/program. This is a great opportunity to informally discuss your own projects, get project ideas or just learn about what people at ETH and around Zurich are doing with LLVM.

Related technical presentations held by participants are welcome (please contact us).

# Who: - Anybody interested -

  - ETH students and staff
  - LLVM developers and enthusiasts external to ETH

# When: 11/04/2016, 19:00

# Where: CAB E 72

# What is LLVM ?

LLVM (http://www.llvm.org) is an open source project that provides
a collection of modular compiler and toolchain technologies. It is centered around a modern SSA-based compiler around which an entire
ecosystem of compiler technology was developed. Most well know is
the clang C++ compiler, which is e.g. used to deploy iOS. Beyond this
a diverse set of projects is developed under the umbrella of LLVM.
These include code generators and assemblers for various interesting
architectures, a jit compiler, a debugger, run-time libraries (C++ Standard Library, OpenMP, Opencl library), program sanity checkers,
and many more.

LLVM has itself grown out of a research project more than 10 years ago and is the base of many exciting research projects today:


# The Organizers

We are members of SPCL (http://spcl.inf.ethz.ch) and the Systems group
(http://systems.ethz.ch) - who kindly hosts us - and use LLVM for some of our research projects. Tobias leads the development of Polly (http://polly.llvm.org).

See you soon,
Greg, Kevin, Tobias, Lucas, Timo
