Itanium Architecture Features and Cool Compiler Tricks
Dan Lavery
Intel Corporation

The Itanium processor family is a new EPIC architecture co-developed by Intel and Hewlett-Packard, the first implementation of which is nearing launch. EPIC architectures provide many resources and instruction-set features that help the compiler to utilize those resources. This talk will describe some of the features of the architecture and present examples of how the compiler can take advantage of them.

Daniel Lavery has 15 years of experience in architecture and compilers for parallel machines and microprocessors. Since receiving a PhD degree from the University of Illinois in 1997, he has worked at Intel on the architecture and compilers for Itanium. He is currently an Itanium compiler developer in the Intel Compiler Lab.

The Colorado Advanced Technology Series wants to introduce students at the University of Colorado to the technology leaders of local and national industries and help the leaders of those companies explain what their companies do and why they are great places to work. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming talks, subscribe to our CATS Mailing List.

The main event of CATS is a series of technical talks in the middle of each semester. In each seminar, a technical or business leader from a local or national company describes new or existing technical developments, the motivation for developing that technology and the corporate environment. Each seminar is followed by refreshments and a chance for students and industry representatives to mingle and talk. See CATS Frequently Asked Questions for further information.
