The primary motivation for our research is the fact that multicore architectures will become a de-facto standard in a near future, while at the same time, there are millions of lines of legacy event-based code, consisting of independent jobs (or tasks), in industry. Rewriting this code into explicitly parallel code would be extremely expensive. Thus, there is a need to investigate methods to migrate such code to parallel architectures with a minimum of rewriting.
