Concurrent programming is one of the major challenges for the software industry. We are in a time of massive experimentation as language designers and programmers search for ways to make concurrent programming easier, less error prone, and more reliable.

This talk will be a survey of concurrent programming constructs which are currently available in some programming language or library. We will look at programming model being presented, as well as examining some of the implementation challenges for the various models.
