  abstract= "As occam based technology matures, and more transputer
     implementations evolve, new application domains will open
     up. This in turn will place fresh requirements on the
     language. In some instances occam, in its current form, will
     be unsuitable and language changes will be inevitable. This
     is, of course, at odds with producing a
     \"standard\" and \"stable\" language
     definition.The purpose of this paper is to identify the
     outstanding issues that must be discussed in the short,
     medium or long-term, if occam (and the transputer) is to be
     used for a wide range of dependable real-time applications
     in current and future systems. Our approach is to start with
     application requirements, from these to indicate occam
     problem areas and then, if appropriate, offer potential
     solutions. The areas considered are those associated with
     hard real-time, software reliability, mode changes, dynamic
     change management and fault management."
