  abstract= "In this paper we discuss primitives for mobilising code and
     communications. We distinguish three types of semantics for
     mobility: copying (where an identical copy is created
     remotely), moving (where the original is destroyed), and
     borrowing (where the original is moved to the target and
     back to where it came from at defined moments). We discuss
     these semantics for mobile code and mobile channels. We have
     implemented Icarus, a language that uses borrowing semantics
     for mobile code (the on-statement) and moving semantics for
     mobile channels (first class channels)."
