Abstract :  This presentation briefly describes a useable abstraction to deal with multiuple tasks. The abstraction seperates tasks in space, in time, syntactically and dissociates the scheduler from the task. Multiple tasks can be processed through one thread, or we can choose to run each task in its own thread. The result is a lockfree programming style.

Keywords:  lockfree programming, active message queues, thread based systems, event based systems
