AErlang is an extension of the Erlang programming language which is enriched with attribute-based communication. In AErlang, the Erlang send and receive constructs are extended to permit partner selection by relying on predicates over set of attributes. AErlang avoids the limitations of the Erlang point-to-point communication making it possible to model some of the sophisticated interaction features often observed in modern systems, such as anonymity and adaptation. By using our prototype extension, we show how the extended communication pattern can capture non-trivial process interaction in a natural and intuitive way. We also sketch a modelling technique aimed at automatically verifying AErlang systems, and discuss how it can be used to check some key properties of the considered case study.
