For "direct connections" slots are always executed in the same thread from where the signal originated.

As Bo already pointed out if you have several slots - directly - connected to a given signal, then they are sequentially processed - in /any/ (undefined/undocumented) order!

If on the other hand those slots are indirectly connected (aka "Queued Connection") then the slots are processed in their respective threads.

So if you have N threads and each is connecting a distinct slot to a given signal with a queued connection (implying that each thread is running its own event queue), when this signal fires then the N slots execute in parallel (as far as the thread scheduler allows).

Read more in the Qt docs, "Signals and Slots Across Threads".
