Multiparty interactions have been paid much attention in recent years because they provide the user with a useful mechanism for coordinating a number of entities that need to cooperate in order to achieve a common goal. In this paper, we present an algorithm for implementing them that is based on the idea of locking resources in a given order. It improves on previous results in that it can be used in a context in which the set of participants in an interaction cannot be known at compile time,
