HIPERFIT Seminar Talk: PhD Status Seminar for Troels Henriksen

Presenter: Troels Henriksen, PhD. Student, DIKU/University of Copenhagen

Time: Tuesday, May 3, 2016, 15:15-16:00

Place: HCØ, AUD 10, Universitetsparken 5, University of Copenhagen.


I will be presenting the work I have been doing during my two years of PhD studies at DIKU. I will talk about:

  • …how I started my PhD work a year before I started my PhD.

  • …what happens when you apply Haskell-inspired DSL techniques to C++. (The results are now hidden from the world in a DOE supercomputer.)

  • …how the Futhark compiler grew from a leaky toy to something that can actually produce decent-ish GPU code.

There will be pretty pictures.


Troels Henriksen is a PhD student at DIKU and works on the implementation and design of the HIPERFIT parallel-functional programming language Futhark.

Host: Martin Elsman and Cosmin Oancea
