  abstract= "Process algebras like CSP and CCS inspired the original
     occam model of communication and process encapsulation.
     Later the pi-calculus and various treatments handling
     mobility in CSP added support for mobility, as realised in
     practical programming systems such as occam-pi, JCSP, CHP
     and Sufrin's CSO, which allow a rather abstract notion of
     motion of processes and channel ends between parents
     or owners. Milner's Space and Motion of Communicating
     Agents on the other hand describes the bigraph framework,
     which makes location more of a first-class citizen of the
     calculus and evolves through reaction rules which rewrite
     both place and link graphs of matching sections of a system
     state, allowing more dramatic dynamic reconfigurations of a
     system than simple process spawning or migration. I consider
     the tractability of the notation, and to what extent the
     additional flexibility reflects or elicits
     desirable programming paradigms."
