Abstract

In this paper, we introduce the notion of concurrent context-oriented programming and its experimental implementation. To realize context-oriented programming in concurrent systems based on asynchronous communication such as the Actor model, we must take special care to control synchronizations among context changes and other computations. We adopt an instance of group-wide reflection to solve the synchronization problem regarding messages that cross two contexts. In this paper, we give some preliminary evaluation results using our implementation in Erlang.
