The ubiquity of multicore processors in commodity computing systems has raised a significant programming challenge for their effective use. An attractive but challenging approach is automatic parallelization of sequential codes. Although virtually all production C compilers have automatic shared-memory parallelization capability, it is rarely used in practice by application developers because of limited effectiveness. In this paper we describe our recent efforts towards developing an effective
