I talk about an extension of the session types to multiparty, asynchronous interactions, which often arise in practical communication-centred applications. The theory introduces a new notion of types in which interactions involving multiple peers are directly abstracted as a global scenario. A global type plays the role of “a shared agreement” among communication peers, and is used as a basis of efficient type checking through its projection onto individual peers. The fundamental properties of the session type discipline such as communication safety and session fidelity are established for general n-party asynchronous interactions.

I also talk about a summary of our recent collaborations based on multiparty session types, with industry partners and a major, long-term, NSF -funded program which provides a ultra large scale cyberinfrustracture for 25-30 years of sustained ocean measurements to study climate variability, ocean circulation and ecosystem dynamics.
