Track Overview

Modern JVM Innovations

Our 'Modern JVM Innovations' track will cover the deep details of adaptive compilations and then take you towards innovations in the compilations world with bringing advanced compilation techniques to commodity hardwares to reduce time to peak performance for such systems. We will also discuss JVM for accelerators such as FPGAs and GPUs. Finally, we will wrap up with a panel on JDK 17, the path travelled: features, tips, and tricks.
