We propose a programming model for distributed concurrent systems with mobile objects in the context of a process calculus. Code mobility is induced by lexical scoping on names. Objects and messages migrate towards the site where their prefixes are lexically bound. Class definitions, on the other hand, are downloaded from the site where they are defined, and are instantiated locally upon arrival. We provide several programming examples to demonstrate the expressiveness of the model. Finally, based on this model we describe an architecture for a run-time system supporting concurrent, distributed computations and code mobility.
