A physical multicomputer is a collection of computers of various architectures interconnected by some means. A virtual multicomputer is to a physical one as virtual memory is to physical memory, that is, there are as many instances of the required architectural resources as the problem demands. In this abstract we outline the requirements and design of a virtual machine architecture for distributed processing (the virtual multicomputer) supporting an architecture neutral representation of program and data and report on the status of the project.
