An abstract data type mechanism is provided by many modern programming languages, and is often employed during system development to promote modularity and reuse. This paper describes ARC, a parallel virtual machine designed for executing programs that use abstract data types (ADTs). The major contribution of ARC is that it supports Asynchronous Remote Procedure Call (ARPC), a model of parallel execution that works well for programs developed by layering ADTs. To support ARPC, ARC performs data synchronization, automatic parameter restoration, and dynamic load balancing
