A proto-runtime is the hardware-specific portion of a modularized runtime system of a parallel language. In the proto-runtime approach, a runtime is broken into three modules: one that implements the behavior of the parallel language constructs, one that implements the work assignment and one that abstracts the hardware, presenting a clean interface to the first two. It is this third module that is called the proto-runtime.
