Call For Papers

The Sixth International Workshop on Mobile Peer-to-Peer Computing (MP2P??10)

In conjunction with The Eighth Annual IEEE International Conference on
Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2010),
Mannheim, Germany, March 29 - April 2, 2010

***** CALL FOR PAPERS *****

Theme of the Workshop

Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks have received great research interests because of
their broad applications such as large-scale file sharing and media streaming
services. Until now, the success of P2P paradigms has been mainly in traditional
wired network environments. With the advance of modern wireless and mobile
communications (e.g., WLAN, MANET, WiMAX, 3G, 3.5G, and emerging 4G), there is
an increasing interest for mobile users with broadband access to participate in
P2P services anywhere anytime through their mobile handheld devices.

Wireless mobile networks have special characteristics, such as highly variable
connectivity, disconnection, location-dependency, energy and resource
sensitivity, communication asymmetry, high bandwidth expense, and so on. All
these pose research challenges that do not exist in traditional network
settings. New techniques are thus required in order to leverage mobile P2P
computing for efficient and reliable applications and services.

Mobile P2P is a cross-disciplinary research involving networking, information
dissemination, databases, and security. The main goal of the workshop is to
gather scientists from these areas together to foster collaboration and sparkle
discussion on various aspects of mobile P2P, including but not limited to,
mobile users' scenarios and usage cases, overlay design, development and
deployment, mobile data dissemination, mobile database management, and location-
based information services. The workshop also aims to discuss mobile P2P in
various networking environments such as vehicular, cellular and/or large-scale
heterogeneous networks.

Workshop Goals

Mobile P2P is a cross cutting area as it crosses communications, networking,
information dissemination, databases, and security. The main goal of the
workshop is to gather scientists from these areas together to foster the
collaboration among such interdisciplinary areas and sparkle discussion on open
topics related to mobile P2P.

Workshop Scope

The scope of this workshop includes but is not limited to the following topics:

- Peer-to-peer overlays for wireless and mobile networks
- Hybrid P2P service architectures for integrated fixed and mobile wide-area networks
- Large-scale mobile P2P systems
- Delay tolerant MP2P systems
- MP2P Data management (Schedule/Cache/Replica/Index/Query)
- Mobility in federated overlay architectures
- Impact of mobility on P2P information services
- P2P-based Information sensing and fusion
- Data broadcast, dissemination in MP2P
- Publish/Subscribe in MP2P
- File Sharing in MP2P
- Media Streaming in MP2P
- Resource and service discovery in MP2P
- Peer access and control in mobile environment
- Privacy in MP2P services
- MP2P messaging systems, monitoring systems, searching systems, etc.
- Location dependent MP2P services
- Novel MP2P applications & services in newly emerging network environments.
