P2P DVE 2009
First Workshop on P2P Distributed Virtual Environments
http://icumtw37.di.unipi.it/default.aspx
St.Petersburg, Russia, 12-14- October 2009

Aims and Scope:
------------------------------

Distributed Virtual Environments (DVE) like military or civil protection distributed simulations
and massively multiplayer online games (MMOG), for instance World of Warcraft or Second Life, are currently gaining
increasing attention in the software market. In a DVE users located at geographically distributed hosts
interact within a virtual world which is populated by user or computer controlled avatars and by

passive objects which may be updated by the avatars. The client server model is currently
the reference model for these applications, but several P2P based approaches have recently been proposed.
In the client server model a single server manages the shared state of the DVE and is responsible of
notifying both the position updates of the avatars and the updates to the shared state.
The main drawback of this solution is the low level of robustness and scalability due to the presence
of the single server. The definition of a fully P2P distributed architecture for DVE
is an actual challenge because of the complexity of these applications which integrate networks,
graphics and AI programming. On the other hand, the adoption of a distributed computational model
is mandatory to overcome the low scalability of client server architectures.

The workshop will focus on fundamental challanges and issues in the fields of P2P Distributed Virtual Environments
and it will highlight the newest trends in this emerging area.
