A multiparty session forms a unit of structured interactions among many participants which follow a prescribed scenario specified as a global type signature. This paper develops, besides a more traditional communication type system, a novel static interaction type system for global progress in dynamically interleaved multiparty sessions.
This article relates two different paradigms of descriptions of communication behavior, one focusing on global message flows and another on end-point behaviors, using formal calculi based on session types. The global calculus, which originates from a Web service description language (W3C WS-CDL), describes an interaction scenario from a vantage viewpoint;(More)
Session primitives and types provide a flexible programming style for structured interaction, and are used to statically check the safe and consistent composition of protocols in communication-centric distributed software. Unfortunately authors working on session types have recently realised that some of the previously published systems fail to satisfy the(More)
We propose a new type discipline for the π-calculus in which secure information flow is guaranteed by static type checking. Secrecy levels are assigned to channels and are controlled by subtyping. A behavioural notion of types capturing causality of actions plays an essential role for ensuring safe information flow in diverse interactive behaviours, making(More)
We introduce two different ways of describing communication-centric software in the form of formal calculi and discuss their relationship. Two different paradigms of description, one centring on global message flows and another centring on local (end-point) behaviours, share the common feature, structured representation of communications. The global(More)
