We argue that the ability to model shared objects with changing local states, dynamic reconfigurability, and inherent parallelism are desirable properties of any model of concurrency. The {\it actor model} addresses these issues in a uniform framework. This paper briefly describes the concurrent programming language {\it Act3} and the principles that have guided its development. {\it Act3} advances the state of the art in programming languages by combining the advantages of object-oriented… CONTINUE READING
