Current language mechanisms for concurrency are largely isolated to the domain of single programs. Furthermore, increasing interest in concurrent programming encourages further research into interoperability in multi-lingual, multi-program settings. This paper introduces our work on Synchronizing Interoperable Resources (SIR), a language approach to begin achieving such interpoperability with respect to concurrent language mechanisms.
