Peer-to-peer (P2P) systems have emerged as an active research field that combines principles from networking, database, distributed computing, and information retrieval. Different from traditional client-server model, a host node in a P2P system can act as both a server and a client, which has significantly changed the way of online information sharing and distribution. P2P techniques bear the potential to realize information systems that scale to voluminous information on very large numbers of participating nodes, while facing many fundamental research challenges for information management.
This workshop intends to bring together researchers and practitioners working on P2P information systems from different disciplines. We invite papers that facilitate better understanding of challenges of P2P information management, apply ideas and techniques from different aspects, and propose innovative solutions to those challenges. Experience reports and position papers are also welcome.
