Abstract

This work is an attempt to construct a new reflective model for parallel and/or distributed systems based on actors. The goal of this work is to establish a solid semantic basis for reflection in concurrent systems. The key idea is to apply parallel composition to actors that constitute the meta-level of a concurrent system. This results in the uniform construction of various types of meta-level actors. The benefits of the construction are presented using an example implementing parallel context-oriented programming.
