Our brand-new tutorial “Core-Level Performance Engineering” has been accepted as a full-day tutorial at ICPE 2023, the 14th ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering. This tutorial concentrates on the in-core aspects of performance modeling and analysis on CPUs. We use Matt Godbolt’s Compiler Explorer and our Open-Source Architecture Code Analyzer (OSACA), which is now integrated with the Compiler Explorer, to teach the basics of code execution including pipelining, superscalarity, SIMD, intra-iteration and loop-carried dependencies, and more. Intel/AMD x86 and ARM Neon/SVE assembly code is introduced, and participants can get their hands dirty exploring the depths of machine code execution using only a web browser! Lead OSACA developer Jan Laukemann did most of the work for this exciting new event. Find the details at: https://icpe2023.spec.org/tutorials/tutorial3/.
