One of the main problems in model-based software engineering is modelling behaviour in such a way that the behaviour models can be easily integrated with each other, with the structural software models and with pre-existing software. In this paper, we propose an event coordination notation (ECNO) that deals with this problem. We present the main concepts and rationales behind this notation and discuss a prototype and run-time environment that executes these models, and provides an API so that other parts of the software can be easily integrated. The core concepts of the ECNO seem to be stabilizing now, and the prototypic implementation of ECNO and its runtime environment show that the concepts of ECNO work. Still, there are some design issues and open questions that we discuss in this paper.
