(funded by the National French Agency, 2018-2022, PI: Laure Gonnord)
The context of the proposal is the increasing need for methods and tools that are able to deal with the massive parallelism now faced by the programmers. So far, methods and tools based on the polyhedral model (a powerful representation for capturing the flow and the data of a program at the same time) suffer from their lack of expressivity.
The objective of the proposal is to invent a way to reason about more general programs and data structures (e.g., trees). We will explore adapting and extending the existing efficient scheduling techniques that have
been developed since the advent of the polyhedral model. The ambition is to develop a new framework with new ideas that may come from other communities such as abstract interpretation, and rewriting systems.
