Parallel programming is widely considered very demanding for an average programmer due to inherent asynchrony of underlying parallel architectures. In this paper we describe the main design principles and core features of Replica -- a parallel language aimed for high-level programming of a new paradigm of reconfigurable, scalable and powerful synchronous shared memory architectures that promise to make parallel programming radically easier with the help of strict memory consistency and deterministic synchronous execution of hardware threads and multi-operations.
