 for explicit parallelism
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  explicit parallelism
  
     A feature of a programming language for a parallel
     processing system which allows or forces the programmer to
     annotate his program to indicate which parts should be
     executed as independent parallel tasks.  This is obviously
     more work for the programmer than a system with implicit
     parallelism (where the system decides automatically which
     parts to run in parallel) but may allow higher performance.
