I don't know of indices. Old proceedings are a great resource.
Look at POPL, PLDI, the Symposium on Lisp and Functional Programming,
and maybe OOPSLA. For journals, look at TOPLAS and LOPLAS.
SIGPLAN Notices is less useful, I think.
>(1) How do I find current research on a particular topic
As above. Additionally, talk to your professors. Make an appointment
with each (or the ones you respect) for 1/2 hour and ask 'em about
people and programs that might suit your interests. Everyone likes
being asked for their opinion!

I don't think anyone's pursuing this.
Usually we like compilers to be software, so we can fix bugs.

POPL, TOPLAS, Symposium on Lisp and Functional Programming
> (c) hardware description language systems
A little shows up in PLDI. Otherwise, I'm not sure.
>(3) What graduate schools are doing interesting things with compilers?

It seems like I do this list every month, and I always leave off
someone important. I apologize in advance!
In no order, expect as they leap to mind,
U of Washington
U of Illinois
Washington U at Saint Louis
Oregon Graduate Institute
