Reference passing systems, like mobile and recon�gurable
systems are common nowadays. The common feature of such systems is the possibility to form dynamic logical connections between the individual modules. However, such systems are very di�cult to verify, as their logical structure is dynamic. Traditionally, decidable fragments of pi-calculus, e.g. the well-known Finite Control Processes (FCP), are used for formal modelling of reference passing systems. Unfortunately, FCPs allow only `global' concurrency between processes, and thus cannot naturally express scenarios involving `local' concurrency inside a process, such as multicast. In this paper we propose Extended Finite Control Processes (EFCP), which are more convenient for practical modelling. Moreover, an almost linear translation of EFCPs to FCPs is developed,
which enables e�cient model checking of EFCPs.
