LLVM, winner of the 2012 ACM Software System Award, has become an integral part of the software-development ecosystem for optimizing compilers, dynamic-language execution engines, source-code analysis and transformation tools, debuggers and linkers, and a whole host of programming-language and toolchain-related components. Now heavily used in both academia and industry, where it allows for rapid development of production-quality tools, LLVM is increasingly used in work targeted at high-performance computing. Research in, and implementation of, program analysis, compilation, execution, and profiling has clearly benefited from the availability of a high-quality, freely-available infrastructure on which to build. This workshop will focus on recent developments, from both academia and industry, that build on LLVM to advance the state of the art in high-performance computing.

This workshop will feature contributed papers and invited talks focusing on recent developments, from both academia and industry, that build on LLVM to advance the state of the art in high-performance computing.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Compiler design for highly-concurrent/parallel environments
- Compilation techniques targeted at high-performance computing codes
- Programming-language implementation techniques enabling high performance and high productivity
- Embedding compilation and dynamic execution at scale
- Tools for optimization, profiling, and feedback
- Source code transformation and analysis
- Gap analyses of open-source LLVM-based tools
