The 6th International Workshop on Large scale Distributed environments, LSDVE 2018
To be held in conjunction with EUROPAR 2018
August 2018, Torino, Italy

Call for Papers

The recent advances in networking have determined an increasing use of information technology to support distributed networked cooperative applications. Several novel applications have emerged in this area: social networks, distributed cryptocurrencies, collaborative work and many other ones. In particular, an interesting technology recently adopted to handle cryptocurrencies (such as bitcoin) is the block-chain technology, that has now taken the more general role to handle several distributedapplications. Furthermore, peer to peer, Internet of Things, Smart-cities, distributed sensing are examples of modern ICT paradigms that aim to describe globally cooperative infrastructures built upon objects' intelligence and self-configuring capabilities.
This workshop aims to provide a venue for researchers to present and discuss important aspects of large scale networked collaborative applications and of the platforms supporting them. The definition of these applications requires to afford several challenges, like the design of user interfaces, coordination protocols, and proper middle-ware and architectures. The track's aim is to investigate open challenges for such applications, related to both the applications design and to the definition of proper supports. Some important challenges are, for instance,adaptation of the classical block-chain technology to support collaborative applications, protocols design, distributed consensus algorithms, privacy and security issues.
The workshop will both present assessment of current state and introduce further directions.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Distributed Large Scale Collaborative Environments(LSCE)and applications
- Distributed cryptocurrencies
- Distributed online social networks
- Internet of Things (IoT) applications
- Distributed sensing
- Distributed gaming
- Block-chain applications: IoT, e-health, supply chain
- Platforms for LSCE: peer to peer, cloud, hybrid
- Block-chain technology to support LSCE
- LSCE as complex networks
- Complex Network analysis
- Big Data processing for LSCE
- Security and Privacy in LSCE
