P2P2002 is the second Conference in a continuation of annual conferences
on Peer-to-Peer technology. We now observe a blurring of lines between
P2P, Grids, and Clusters in a convergence towards a common set of
protocols and presence within the same computing environments. This
motivates us to open our scope of topics to include research vectors
that reflect this convergence. Our original focus remains the use
of computers at the edge of networks (leaf peers)
was greeted with enthusiasm and judged a successful first conference
on P2P technology. 63 researchers attended. Valuable papers were published
in the Proceedings
that reflect state-of-the-art and cutting edge research. Read one participant's impressions of last year's conference.
Consistent with P2P2001
we promote a collaboration in research between academic institutions
and business enterprises in Peer-to-Peer computing.
Any topic that concerns computing at the edge of networks (leaf
peer computing) is open for consideration. This includes papers
that reflect the convergence of P2P protocols and presence with
Grids, and Clusters.
Some suggested topics are:
- Operating Systems
- Real-time Systems
- Virtual Computers
- Network/Community Management and Administration
We include all presented papers in the proceedings. The prepublication
proceedings hardcopy is planned for hand-out on the first day of
the conference. The IEEE Proceedings hardcopy will be sent directly
to attendees from IEEE.
