On the first day here at the summer school, the organizers gave us the opportunity to present our research ideas to the lecturers and other participants.

I presented my idea on extending the virtual machine models with explicit support for concurrency models. My brief presentation focused on using multiple-language virtual machines to provide support for domain-specific concurrent languages. It basically states the question whether it is possible to use the concepts of locality and encapsulation as a common foundation for a wide range of different models. Since I am at the very beginning of working on this specific idea, there aren’t any answers yet.
