Special Issue on “Resource Discovery Mechanisms for P2P Systems”

In the last years Peer-to-Peer (P2P) computing has emerged as a milestone in distributed computing. It enables large-scale aggregation of resources (e.g. files, applications, services, storage, processing cycles and services) geographically distributed and belonging to unrelated administrative domains. Despite the results obtained by many researchers, advancing in ICT poses many challenges in terms of protocols, infrastructures, secure and efficient access and allocation of resources, fault tolerance, scalability and performance. Particular interest has been expressed on resource discovery, in which important aspects are expressiveness and effectiveness of the resource selection criteria. Being able to select in efficient way a set of resources that meets specific criteria is a requirement of many systems and applications such as Cloud systems and online-gaming applications. This special issue will focus on new methods and algorithms to efficiently and effectively access data distributed over large-scale P2P overlay networks.
Papers in the following topics (non-exhaustively) are welcome.

P2P solutions for Clouds, Datacenters and Grids
Publishing, Searching and Query Processing in P2P networks
Routing and fault-tolerance in P2P systems
P2P Overlays
P2P economics
Epidemic protocols and algorithms for P2P Networks
P2P applications and systems in mobile environments
Performance, robustness, and scalability
