International Workshop on
P2P Collaborative Distributed Virtual Environments
(P2P CDVE 2010)

October 25th, 2010

Collaborative Distributed Virtual Environments (CDVE) enable geographically distant users to echange information, communicate and collaborate. CDVE are currently exploited in different areas, from videoconferences, shared whiteboards and computer supported collaborative work (CSCW) to distributed simulations like military or civil protection distributed simulations for training and massively multiplayer online games (MMOG). MMOG like World of Warcraft or Second Life, are currently gaining increasingly attention in the software market.

Currently the client server model is still the reference computational model for this kind of applications, but approaches based on the P2P model have recently been proposed. In the client server architecture a single server is responsible of guaranteeing the consistency and the persistency of the state of the CDVE. The server notifies the update of the state to the interested users. The main disadvantages of this solution is the low level of robustness and of scalability due to the presence of the single server.

The definition of a fully distributed architecture for CDVE is an actual challenge because of the complexity of these applications which integrate networks, graphics and AI techniques. On the other hand, the adoption of a distributed computational model is mandatory to overcome the low scalability of client server architectures. P2P architectures are a promising alternative architecture for this kind of applications. Several issues have to be solved to define a fully distributed architecture for these applications. The most important are related, for instance, to the management and the consistency of the state in a fully distributed environment and to the security of the system.


Researcher from academy and industry are invited to submit a paper related to the following topics
● P2P Overlays for Collaborative Distributed Virtual Environments
● Scalability
● State Consistency
● State Persistency
● Security and Privacy
● Content Streaming
● Cheating Prevention Techniques
● Responsiveness
● Hybrid Architetures
● Implementation Issues
