Well, as in any science, the more you discover, the less you know...


In compiler optimisation, it depends if you target computer engineering
or computer science.


In computer engineering, you can check the latest or the upcoming
architectures of the market (multicore, DSP, VLIW, etc.) and see what
you can do for them. Any empirical result would be interesting for
quick publication in conferences, but such results become obsolete
after few years (even if they would be cited for many years).


In computer science, you can take an open problem (there are too many,
from backend to frontend), often highlighted by computer engineering,
and try to have a mathematical result. It is a more difficult process,
but your results would stay valid forever.
