Springer Peer to Peer Networking and Applications Journal (PPNA)
Special Issue on Large Scale Distributed Cooperative Environments on Clouds and P2P

Submission Deadline: December 1, 2014

The recent advances in networking have determined an increasing use of information technology
to support distributed cooperative applications. Several novel applications have emerged in this
area, like computer supported collaborative work (CSCW), large scale distributed virtual worlds,
collaborative recommender systems, collaborative learning systems.
The definition of these applications requires to afford several challenges, like the definition of user
interfaces, of coordination protocols, and of proper middle-ware and architectures supporting
distributed cooperation. Collaborative applications may greatly benefits also from the support of
P2P and cloud architectures.
As a matter of fact, with the emergence of readily available P2P and cloud platforms, collaborative
applications developers have the opportunity of deploying their collaborative application by
exploiting a hybrid P2P/Cloud architectures with a support dynamically adapting. This brings
possibilities to smaller developers that were reserved for the big companies until recently. The
integration of mobile/Cloud platforms for Collaborative Applications is another challenge for the
widespread of these applications.
The purpose of the proposed Special Issue of Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications is to
provide a comprehensive view into recent advances in Distributed Collaborative Environments.
Some important challenges are, for instance, collaborative protocols design, latency reduction/
hiding techniques for guaranteeing real time constraints, large-scale processing of user
information, privacy and security issues, state consistency/ persistence in distributed data
Submission are welcomed both of extended version of the papers presented at The Second
Workshop on Large Scale Distributed Environments, LSDVE 2014, held in conjunction with
paper 2014 and of new original papers.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following

- Distributed Collaborative Environments (DCE)
- Distributed Computer Supported Collaborative Work
- Distributed Recommender Systems
- Distributed Collaborative Learning
- Distributed Collaborative Games
- Distributed Social Applications
- P2P Overlays for DCE
- P2P information diffusion protocols for DCE
- Handling churn in P2P DCE
- Consistency/Persistence Issues
- Security and Privacy
- Integration of P2P/Cloud Platforms for Collaborative Applications
- Multi-platform Collaborative Applications Support (phones, tablets, laptop,...)

Instructions for submission

Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality, original work that has neither appeared in, nor is under
consideration by, other journals. Springer offers authors, editors and reviewers of Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications a
web-enabled online manuscript submission and review system. The Springer
online system offers authors the ability to track the review process of
their manuscript.
Manuscripts should be submitted to: under the
article type “ Large Scale Distributed Cooperative Environments…” This online
system offers easy and straightforward log-in and submission procedures, and supports a wide range of submission file formats.
Papers must be written in English and describe original research not published or currently under review by other journals or conferences.
All relevant papers submitted will go through an external, rigorous review process.
