Open Distributed Processing (OPD) is continuing to be of great interest to specialists across the academic and industrial spectrums - from technical experts, standardisation people, researchers at universities and research institutions, developers in industry, customers and users from application domains, right through to politicians involved in public administrations.This book presents contributions from a diverse range of such experts, indicating its commitment to stimulating the international harmonization of activities required for further achievement in the area. The major application highlighted is informatics in medicine and topics given particular consideration are: trader/trading, distributed systems, quality of multimedia services, distributed applications and ODP design and modelling concepts. All papers stress the innovative aspects of ODP and the need for cooperation with standardisation groups, supporting political, administrative and industrial initiatives to attain the goal of introducing new services in various application domains.
