Peer-to-peer systems have considerably evolved since their original conception, in the 90’s. The idea of distributing files using the user’s terminal as a relay has now been widely extended to embrace virtually any form of resource (e.g., computational and storage resources), data (e.g. files and real-time streams) and service (e.g., IP telephony, IP TV, collaboration).
More complex systems, however, require more sophisticated management solutions, and in this context P2P can become an interesting issue, playing the hole of both the target and the enabler of new management systems. Contributions are also expected address the management of P2P applications as well as the use of P2P technologies as management tools for traditional and modern systems.
The First International Conference on Advances in Peer-to-Peer Systems (AP2PS 2009) builds on the success of the First International Workshop on Computational P2P Networks (ComP2P 2008) but has a broader focus. AP2PS 2009 aims at capturing the latest developments, findings and proposals in the general area of P2P computing, networking, services, and applications. The areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics.
The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas. All tracks are open to both research and industry contributions.
ADVP2P: Advances in theoretical foundations of P2P
PERFP2P: Performance analysis of P2P frameworks and applications
SECP2P: Security, trust and reputation in P2P
BUSP2P: Business oriented P2P
TIMEP2P: Time-constrained P2P systems
QOEP2P: Quality of experience in P2P systems
WIRP2P: P2P and wireless convergence
SENSP2P: P2P technology and sensors
SERVP2P: Service-oriented P2P
MOBP2P: Mobile P2P
MANP2P: Managing P2P
LEGP2P: Legal and regulatory issues
INSTRUCTION FOR THE AUTHORS
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to one of the IARIA Journals.
Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received papers will be acknowledged via an automated system.
Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here.
Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.
Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be provided by the Conference Publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.
Posters are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the track/workshop preference as "POSTER : Poster Forum". Submissions are expected to be 6-8 slide deck. Posters will not be published in the Proceedings. One poster with all the slides together should be used for discussions. Presenters will be allocated a space where they can display the slides and discuss in an informal manner. The poster slide decks will be posted on the IARIA site.
For more details, see the Poster Forum explanation page.
Work in Progress
Work-in-progress contributions are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the track/workshop preference as "WIP: Work in Progress". Authors should submit a four-page (maximum) text manuscript in IEEE double-column format including the authors' names, affiliations, email contacts. Contributors must follow the conference deadlines, describing early research and novel skeleton ideas in the areas of the conference topics. The work will be published in the conference proceedings.
For more details, see the Work in Progress explanation page
Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations
The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will not be published in the conference’s CD Proceedings. Presentations' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your presentations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals should be for three hour tutorials. Proposals must contain the title, the summary of the content, and the biography of the presenter(s). The tutorials' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your proposals to email@example.com
The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies. The panel's slide deck will be posted on the IARIA's site.
