Scope and Topics
The P2P'10 conference solicits papers on all aspects of peer-to-peer computing. Of particular interest is research that furthers the state-of-the-art in the design and analysis of peer-to-peer applications and systems, or that investigates real, deployed, large-scale peer-to-peer applications or systems. The applications can range from the traditional peer-to-peer application of file sharing to more novel applications such as media streaming and intelligence sharing. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following aspects of P2P computing:
- Information retrieval and query support
- Semantic overlay networks and semantic query routing
- P2P for grids, clouds, and datacenters
- Deployed (commercial) applications and systems
- Security, trust, and reputation
- Cooperation, incentives, and fairness
- P2P economics
- Social networks
- Overlay architectures and topologies
- Overlay interaction with underlying infrastructure
- Overlay monitoring and management
- P2P applications and systems over mobile networks
- Performance, robustness, and scalability
Papers can be submitted either as full papers or as short papers in the IEEE single-spaced two-column format using at least 10 point font size. Full papers should not exceed 10 pages and short papers should not exceed 4 pages. Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through the paper-submission website linked from the conference website. IEEE templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word, as well as related information, can be found at the IEEE Digital Toolbox webpage. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Communications Society.
All submissions will be evaluated using a double-blind review process. To ensure blind reviewing, papers should be anonymized by removing author names and affiliations, as well as by masking any information about projects and bibliographic references, etc. that might reveal the authors' identities. Papers that are not properly anonymized will be returned without review. Submitted papers should describe original and previously unpublished research and are not allowed to be simultaneously submitted or under review elsewhere.
All papers must be registered with the submission system by the abstract submission deadline. At least one author of every accepted paper must register to the conference not later than June 10, 2010, 12 PM (EST) and present the paper.
