Artifact Evaluation Policy

The artifact has been evaluated as described in the ECOOP 2022 Call for Artifacts and the ACM Artifact Review and Badging Policy


This artifact contains a version of MultiCrusty, a Rust library designed for writing and checking communication protocols following the Affine Multiparty Session Types theory introduced in our ECOOP'22 paper. MultiCrusty can work, and should be used, with Scribble [Yoshida et al., 2014] and kMC [{Julien} {Lange} and {Nobuko} {Yoshida}, 2019]: with the former tool, users can write correct global protocols and project them onto local Rust types defined within MultiCrusty, this approach is qualified as top-down; while the latter tool allows to check local Rust types written by users, this approach is qualified as bottom-up. Our artifact contains those three tools, their respective source files, as well as the different examples and benchmarks introduced in our paper, all together within a Docker image.
