If you have a question about this talk, please contact Paul Levy. We propose a semantic foundation for optimisations based on type and effect analysis. We present a multiple-effect call-by-push-value based calculus whose denotational semantics is based on an effect-indexed structure of adjunctions. When the underlying set of effects is specified by an algebraic theory, we take effects to be given by sets of operations. The required adjunction structure can then be obtained via a uniform process of conservative restriction of the theory. The modular composition of effects then boils down to extension conservativeness results. We use our calculus and its semantics to provide general effect- dependent optimisations. Many of the already known effect-dependent optimisations are then particular cases of our general ones. We have thus demonstrated the possibility of a general theory of effect optimisations based on the algebraic theory of effects.
