This paper introduces the idea of distributed orchestration of user interfaces (UIs), an application development approach that allows us to easily bring together UIs, web services, and people in a single orchestration logic, language, and tool. The tool is called MarcoFlow, and it covers three main phases of the software development lifecycle: design (by means of a dedicated, visual editor), deployment (by means of a set of code generators), and execution (by means of a distributed runtime environment for UI orchestrations). MarcoFlow targets the development of mashup-like applications that require (distributed) process support and, hence, targets researchers and practitioners interested in mashups, lightweight process design, web services, and innovative (and free) ways of providing process support.
