|Workshop on Dependability and Security in P2P (WeeP 2009)|
Peer to peer and self-organizing systems hold the promise of offering services and information anywhere and anytime, with better scalability, improved reliability and lower costs. This is done by eliminating the necessity of any statically designed infrastructure or any centralized administrative authority. It is in the nature of such networks to be self-organizing, since additionally, entities are allowed to join or leave the network in an arbitrary manner, making the whole system highly dynamic.
The issue of designing dependable and secure systems that can cope with the high dynamism and self-organization nature of overlay networks is a real challenge. Therefore, many problems should be addressed. What models are most appropriate for dynamic systems? What kind of consistency requirements can be ensured? How to deploy services and data in order to achieve high availability and better utilization of peer capacities? How to construct an overlay and routing infrastructure which is scalable and fault-tolerant? How to build efficient and secure search mechanisms? How can applications adapt themselves to the instability of the system and links, due to arbitrary leaves and joins, mobility, failures, congestion and collisions.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers from different domains to create a forum for investigating the many aspects of providing dependability and security in self-organizing, large-scale and dynamic systems. Contributions may span a broad range of topics, including:
- models for dynamic and self-organizing systems;
INSTRUCTIONS TO CONTRIBUTORS
Papers should be written in English and can be submitted in the following categories: Regular Papers describing original research, Practical Experience Reports describing an experience or a case study. Regular Papers and Practical Experience Reports should be no longer than 6 pages, IEEE style double-column format, respectively, including figures, tables, references, and appendices. The font size should be 10 points. The first page should include an abstract, authors' names, addresses and affiliations, and specify whether the submission is a Regular Paper or a Practical Experience Report. The full mailing address, telephone and FAX numbers, as well as e-mail address of the contact author should also be indicated.
