Colloquium - Diwan

Using Compiler Analyses to Improve Programmer Productivity
Stanford University

A concept that has been shown to be useful for programming tools is the notion of program slicing. A slice is a subset of the program statements that directly or indirectly contribute to the values assumed by a set of variables at some program point over all possible executions of the program. This concept is useful for the construction, optimization, maintenance, testing and debugging of programs. In this talk I will describe a new context-sensitive slicing algorithm, present an evaluation of three slicing techniques, and demonstrate how we use slicing to help in parallelization.

Hosted by Richard Byrd.
Refreshments will be served immediately following the talk in ECOT 831.
