Itanium Architecture Features and Cool Compiler Tricks
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.

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.
