This paper presents a brief outline of the Mobidget programming language, which is designed for mobile and distributed computation. An agent, which is an abstraction of a process and a protection domain, can migrate either in whole or in part to different nodes in the network during execution. Objects in an agent may be distributed to several nodes in the network, and even if their exact location is unknown, they can be accessed from the other parts of the agent located on different nodes. Other features, such as inter-agent communication and base-specific method invocation, are also described.
