  abstract= "Go is a new open-source programming language from a team of
     Google's developers. It provides a modern garbage-collected
     runtime that has particular support for concurrency. The
     pattern for this is based on Hoare's CSP, using channels for
     synchronization and communication, and discouraging the
     direct sharing of variables. Processes are light-weight
     co-operative threads that the runtime time-slices
     onto underlying operating system threads; this allows an
     application's natural concurrency to be expressed as fully
     as needed by the natural concurrency of the application
     domain. The presentation provides an overview of Go's main
     features, covering in particular the unusual interfaces and
     duck-typing, the reflection and the concurrency. Focussing
     on concurrency in detail, as an example, a
     simple web-crawler application is converted step by step to
     operate concurrently, and at each stage this allows a
     particular feature of Go's concurrency to be demonstrated."
