This paper describes the use of Adaptive Compilation, a system of optimizing code based on information gathered while running the code itself, to match the parallelism of the application to the characteristics of the underlying hardware. A parallel programming model is defined as an extension of the object oriented language Self with adaptive compilation used to trim parallelism in excess of that supported by a given hardware configuration.
