The Core (Compiler Research) Lab is a research lab led by
professor Hanjun Kim at POSTECH, Pohang University of Science and
Technology. The focus of the Core Lab is the design of compilers and
architectures to improve performance, power-efficiency, and reliability without
burdening application developers.
The Compiler Optimization Project -
Compiler becomes a new core of modern computer architecture. The Compiler
Optimization project proposes a novel compiler system that automatically
optimizes programs for different computer systems from mobile systems to cloud
The Parallelization Project -
As state-of-the-art smartphones, tablet, laptops and servers adopt multicore
processors with GPUs, computer systems become increasingly parallel and
heterogeneous. The Parallelization project investigates sequential programs
that never before parallelized and finds scalable parallelism opportunities
for the scalable and heterogeneous computer systems.
The Security Project -
Computer systems are storehouses of personal information. As more and more
personal data are stored in computer systems, ensuring the confidentiality of
the private data has become a critical problem in security. The Security
project proposes a co-designed compiler and computer architecture that securely
protect private information.
