I am currently working on a process calculus that aims at modelling the 
Fractal component model (see for more info 
about this component model). We want to use this to build type systems 
and other verification tools, as well as doing an implementation in our  
favorite language (tm) (it has two implementations for the moment: one 
in Java, and one in C).

We don't have much to read yet, we are currently finishing up a tech 
report about the calculus itself. I can announce it here when we're
