Abstract : Moore's law on semiconductors is coming to an end. Scaling the von Neumann architecture over the 40 years of the microprocessor has led to unsustainable circuit complexity, very low compute-density, and high power consumption. On the other hand, parallel computing practices are nowhere close to the portability, accessibility, productivity and reliability levels of single-threaded software engineering. This dangerous gap translates into exciting challenges for compilation and programming language research in high-performance, general purpose and embedded computing. This thesis motivates our approach to these challenges, introduces our main directions and results, and draws research perspectives.
