Interprocess Communication IPC has been recognized as a critical issue in the design and implementation of all modern operating systems. IPC policies and mechanisms are even more central in the design of highly distributed processing systems - systems exhibiting short-term dynamic changes in the availability of physical and logical resources as well as interconnection topology. A workshop on this subject was held at the Georgia Institute of Technology in November 1979. Four working groups, 1 Addressing, Naming, and Security, 2 Interprocess Synchronization, 3 Interprocess Mechanisms, and 4 Theory and Formalism, addressed the current state of the art in these areas as well as problems and future research directions. This report incorporates much of the material and working papers from those fields as well as selected references useful in understanding the topic. Author
