Talk Title: On
Mutualism of Modularity and Concurrency Goals

Abstract:
Modularity

and concurrency-related goals are often treated separately. In this talk,

I will demonstrate that these goals can, in fact, be treated synergistica

lly. I will also discuss advantages of achieving a mutualism between modula

rity and concurrency goals in scalability, portability, and most importan

tly in human capital investment.
