This paper discusses the problem of allocating storage for the activation records of procedure calls within a system of parallel processes. A compile time storage allocation scheme is given, which determines the relative address within the memory segment of a process for the activation records of all procedures called by the process. This facilitates the generation of an efficient run-time code. The allocation scheme applies to systems in which data and procedures can be shared among several processes. However, recursive procedure calls are not supported.
