Track Program Committee:
Much of the appeal of peer-to-peer systems and overlay networks is due to their fully decentralized designs. The resulting robustness and scalability is attractive for various applications, and the underlying principles have been employed in many contexts beyond file sharing in the Internet today (e.g., in the cloud). However, the highly dynamic membership as well as the potential exposure to malicious attacks requires highly efficient mechanisms for joins/leaves and self-stabilization. The goal of this track is to bring together researchers interested in system dynamics and self-organization in peer-to-peer and overlay networks.
