  I am interested in the field of alias analysis. There seems to be a
lot of literature in the area, but i am not sure which algorithms are
really used in actual compilers. I would apperciate if someone could
give me a pointer to recent developments in the area. I am already
reading a few papers, for e.g.:

* Detecting Conflicts Between Structure Accesses (James R Larus, Paul
N Hilfinger)
* Analysis of Pointers and Structures (David R Chase, Mark Wegman, F
Kenneth Zadeck)
* Interprocedural Pointer Alias Analysis (Michael Burke, Paul R
Carini, Jong-Deok Choi)
* Context-Sensitive Interprocedural Points-to Analysis in the Presence
of Function Pointers (Maryam Emami, Rakesh Ghiya, Laurie J. Hendren)
* Precise Flow-Insensitive May-Alias Analysis is NP-Hard (Susan Horwitz)
* The Undecidability of Aliasing (G Ramalingam)

What I want is the list of few recent papers/websites in the area.

Thank you,
Amey Karkare
