REAL APPLICATIONS FOR PEER-TO-PEER NETWORKS
Peer-to-Peer network have already shown to be a good solution to build large scale information systems.
They provide very good fault tolerance mechanisms, as well as very high availability of the data. Several well-known applications like Skype, Bitcoin, or PeerTV, already use Peer-to-Peer techniques. Peer-to-Peer systems especially appear to be very well suited to handle a huge amount of data, and represent a good candidate to implement scientific applications for BIG DATA computation. Another promising approach for the Peer-to-Peer research community relies on the social networks. The exponential growth of most of the up to date social networks makes the need of a feasible solution to replace the traditional cluster model a major concern.
Building a real application over a Peer-to-Peer network requires a different approach than for grid or clusters. We especially have to deal with the scalability of the application, with data placement problems, with replication management, as well as fault tolerance problems where malicious nodes are involved.
The aim of this workshop is to investigate new proposals that help in the design and the implementation of real large scale applications for Peer-to-Peer networks. We especially look for contributions that propose innovative methods to design and/or implement real applications over the Peer-to-Peer paradigm.
