Mobile Processes and Mobile Processors
Professor David May, FRS

University of Bristol, UK

Abstract: Concurrent processes are a natural and efficient way to write distributed interactive programs for the internet. Important ideas are mobile processes which carry their environments with them, and mobile channels which stretch and contract as the connected processes move.

Technology advances will give rise to increasingly mobile processors, and these will be optimised for multimedia processing and communication. They will require implementations of mobile processes and channels which allow the inter-processor connections to change continually as the processors move.
