Personal page of Guillaume Iooss

I am currently a Post-Doctorate at Inria (team Corse in Grenoble), working on polyhedral model. I previously worked on synchronous language (with team Parkas in Paris) and the Heptagon compiler.

My topics of interest is compilation. More precisely: the polyhedral model, tiling, program equivalence (and using semantic properties in a compiler) and synchronous languages.

  • Post-doctorate at Corse (Grenoble): I have just started a post-doctorate with team Corse in Grenoble.
  • Post-doctorate at Parkas (Paris): My current post-doctorate is about synchronous language, in the context of the project Assume. The goal is to map industrial applications into the Kalray MPPA. I am mainly working on the front-end aspect, by exploiting the harmonic multirate aspects of the periodic clocks of the applications. I am working with the Heptagon compiler for this project, and in collaboration with Airbus and Safran. I am also working on a OpenCL backend to the Heptagon compiler (project Redefine), in order to offload computations on an accelerator.
  • PhD: "Detection of linear algebra operations in polyhedral programs" (Dissertation / Slides of the defense). My PhD was a cotutelle between ENS Lyon (advisers: Christophe Alias, Alain Darte/ team: Compsys) and Colorado State University (adviser: Sanjay Rajopadhye / team: Melange). This work contains mainly two contributions: the monoparametric tiling (also called Constant Aspect Ratio Tiling), a parametric tiling in the polyhedral model, and a template recognition algorithm, which can manage semantic properties commonly encountered in linear algebra (in particular the associativity and commutativity properties of reduction operators). These contributions were combined in order to recognize automatically tiles of the program as combination of BLAS library calls.
