The look-ahead execution approach, which allows participant processes that exist early to exit from a conversation before other participants finish their conversation activities, is presented here as a fundamental approach to reducing the synchronization overhead. Queuing network models are developed for both the system operating under the basic conversation execution scheme and the system oper
