Peer to Peer Computing


Peer-to-peer (P2P) systems allow any computer (peer) anywhere to share information and other resources with its peers in possibly large-scale distributed computing environments. The computing environments promoted by the P2P paradigm are decentralized in nature, they are self-organizing and self-coordinating, they dynamically adapt to peer arrivals and departures, they are preferably highly resilient to failures and to high latencies, and they can include huge numbers of peers (tens of thousands to millions). As P2P research becomes more mature, new challenges emerge to support complex and heterogeneous decentralized environments for sharing and managing data, resources, and knowledge with highly dynamic and unpredictable usage patterns. This topic provides a forum for researchers to present new contributions on P2P systems, technologies, middleware, and applications that address key research issues and challenges.
