P2P2002 is an IEEE Conference

The Scope

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)

P2P2001 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.

Call for Papers
pdf version

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:

  • Interoperability
  • Security
  • Agents
  • Middleware
  • Protocols
  • Operating Systems
  • Collaboration
  • Applications
  • Real-time Systems
  • Virtual Computers
  • Network/Community Management and Administration
  • Wireless

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.
