Coordination Models and Languages: From Parallel Computing to Self-Organisation

Andrea Omicini
Starting from the pioneering work on Linda and Gamma, coordination models and languages have gone through an amazing evolution process over the years. From closed to open systems, from parallel computing to multi-agent systems and from database integration to knowledge-intensive environments, coordination abstractions and technologies have gained in relevance and power in those scenarios where complexity has become a key factor. In this talk, we outline and motivate 25 years of evolution of coordination models and languages, and discuss their potential perspectives in the future of artificial systems: from chemical tuple-based models to semantic self-organising coordination, including the SAPERE perspective for self-aware pervasive service eco-systems.
