Abstract : We show that the techniques for resource control that have been developed in the so-called "light logics" can be fruitfully applied also to process algebras. In particular, we present a restriction of Higher-Order pi-calculus inspired by Soft Linear Logic. We prove that any soft process terminates in polynomial time. We argue that the class of soft processes may be naturally enlarged so that interesting processes are expressible, still maintaining the polynomial bound on executions.
