Composing Reo Connector Animations,
José Proença (CWI, Amsterdam)

We present a scheme to animate Reo Connectors, inspired by the Connector Coloring semantics. The resulting animations give better intuition about the behavior of these connectors.  Special emphasis is placed on the automatic generation of Reo animations based on Animation Specifications of each Reo channel. The Animation Specifications are then composed to create an Animation Step, from which we generate the final animation.
