***** CALL FOR PAPERS *****
Theme of the Workshop
Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks have received great research interests because of their broad applications such as large-scale file sharing and media streaming services. Until now, the success of P2P paradigms has been mainly in traditional wired network environments. With the advance of modern wireless and mobile communications (e.g., WLAN, MANET, WiMAX, 3G, 3.5G, and emerging 4G), there is an increasing interest for mobile users with broadband access to participate in P2P services anywhere anytime through their mobile handheld devices.
Wireless mobile networks have special characteristics, such as highly variable connectivity, disconnection, location-dependency, energy and resource sensitivity, communication asymmetry, high bandwidth expense, and so on. All these pose research challenges that do not exist in traditional network settings. New techniques are thus required in order to leverage mobile P2P computing for efficient and reliable applications and services.
Mobile P2P is a cross-disciplinary research involving networking, information dissemination, databases, and security. The main goal of the workshop is to gather scientists from these areas together to foster collaboration and sparkle discussion on various aspects of mobile P2P, including but not limited to, mobile users' scenarios and usage cases, overlay design, development and deployment, mobile data dissemination, mobile database management, and location- based information services. The workshop also aims to discuss mobile P2P in various networking environments such as vehicular, cellular and/or large-scale heterogeneous networks.
Mobile P2P is a cross cutting area as it crosses communications, networking, information dissemination, databases, and security. The main goal of the workshop is to gather scientists from these areas together to foster the collaboration among such interdisciplinary areas and sparkle discussion on open topics related to mobile P2P.
The scope of this workshop includes but is not limited to the following
* P2P computing in wireless and mobile networks
* P2P computing in mobile cloud
* P2P in in VANET, MANET, Heterogeneous Networks
* Novel MP2P applications & services in newly emerging network environments.
- MP2P overlay and middleware
