The 2nd International Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Systems (IPTPS'03) aims
to provide a forum for researchers active in peer-to-peer computing to
discuss the state-of-the-art and to identify key research challenges
in peer-to-peer computing. IPTPS'03 hopes to continue and build on the
success of the first workshop, IPTPS'02.
The goal of the workshop is to examine peer-to-peer technologies, applications and systems, and also to identify key research issues and challenges that lie ahead. In the context of this workshop, peer-to-peer systems are characterized as being decentralized, self-organizing distributed systems, in which all or most communication is symmetric. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
The workshops aims to bring
together researchers and practitioners in the fields of systems,
networking, and theory. The program of the workshop will be a
combination of invited talks, presentations of position papers, and
discussions. To ensure a productive workshop environment, attendance
will be limited to about 50 participants who are active in the field.
Each potential participant should submit a position paper
that exposes a new problem, advocates
a specific solution, or reports on actual experience. Participants
will be invited based on the originality, technical merit and topical
relevance of their submissions, as well as the likelihood that the
ideas expressed in their submissions will lead to insightful technical
discussions at the workshop. Please do not submit abbreviated
versions of journal or conference papers.
A post-proceedings of the workshop will be published by Springer-Verlag in their LNCS Hot Topics series.
