Since Internet applications are intrinsically interactive and collaborative, the definition and development of an appropriate coordination model, and its integration in forthcoming Internet programming languages, is a key issue to build applications including mobile entities. We sketch the main features that such a model should present. Then, we survey and discuss some coordination models for Internet programming languages, eventually outlining open issues and promising research directions.
