Management of the communications among a set of concurrent processes arises in many applications and is a central concern in parallel computing and distributed computing. In this paper we introduce MANIFOLD: a coordination language for managing complex interconnections among sets of independent, concurrent, cooperating processes. The MANIFOLD system is suitable for massively parallel environments.
