%X 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\[rs] on\-line diaries.
