  abstract= "The mobile agent concept has been developed over a number of
     years and is widely accepted as one way of solving problems
     that require the achievement of a goal that cannot be
     serviced at a specific node in a network. The concept of a
     mobile process is less well developed because implicitly it
     requires a parallel environment within which to operate. In
     such a parallel environment a mobile agent can be seen as a
     specialization of a mobile process and both concepts can
     be incorporated into a single application environment, where
     both have well defined requirements, implementation and
     functionality. These concepts are explored using a simple
     application in which a node in a network of processors is
     required to undertake some processing of a piece of data for
     which it does not have the required process. It is known
     that the required process is available somewhere in
     the network. The means by which the required process is
     accessed and utilized is described. As a final demonstration
     of the capability we show how a mobile meeting organizer
     could be built that allows friends in a social network to
     create meetings using their mobile devices given that they
     each have access to the others' on-line diaries."
