Workshop Topics

We seek high-quality and original contributions on the general theme of P2P systems. The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics of special interest:

  • Overlay technologies for the Future Internet 
  • P2P and Social Networks
  • Trust and reputation management in P2P system
  • Novel P2P Systems: P2P Storage, P2P Streaming,...
  • P2P Internet Infrastructures
  • P2P Middleware
  • Security in P2P systems
  • Self-organization in P2P systems
  • Cooperative searching for P2P systems
  • P2P programming and metaprogramming
  • QoS and SLA management in P2P systems
  • P2P economics
  • P2P Groupware tools and architectures
  • P2P applications and services
  • Industrial applications / P2P in use
  • P2P software developement support
  •  P2P research projects


Submission Details

In line with other workshops COPECH intends to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative applications, and trends in this research area. We encourage submissions of position papers (2-6 pages) presenting novel ideas that may lead to insightful technical discussions at the workshop.

Papers should contain original contributions not published or submitted elsewhere, and references to related state-of-the-art work. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their views of the field at the oral presentation. Papers up to six pages (including figures, tables and references) can be submitted. Papers should follow the IEEE format, which is single spaced, two columns, 10 pt Times/Roman font. Papers should include a title, the name and affiliation of each author, an abstract of up to 150 words and no more than eight keywords. Authors should also provide contact addresses, if different from the submitting electronic address. All submissions should be electronic (in PDF) and will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee members.

Full papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the proceedings, published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Note that at least one author from each accepted paper should register to attend WETICE 2010 to get the paper published in the Post-conference Proceedings

If you have further questions or remarks, please do not hesitate to contact the workshop chair.

Please submit your paper by accessing the easy Chair Submission Site. You can also send it by email to the Workshop chair (buttarazzi@info.uniroma2.it) if you experience problems with the easyChair Web site.

Workshop Theme

The workshop aims to become a small, high quality and interactive meeting for novel P2P ideas and proposals. P2P technologies are just beginning to change the way people and computers interact in the Internet. P2P applications like file sharing, distributed computing or VoIP have already atracted millions of users. Furthermore, P2P paradigm makes a huge influence in video-on-demand and multimedia streaming, distributed storage,applications for mobile devices, Internet infrastructures and social networks among others.

P2P Systems are popular because of the many benefits that they offer: adaptation, self-organization, fault tolerance and massively distribution and replication of large amount of resources. On the one hand, Collaborative P2P systems aim to benefit from the huge amount of unused resources of desktop computers (content, data storage, cpu, bandwidth) to create the next generation of Internet Infrastructures. On the other hand, P2P is particularly challenging for developing collaborative information systems. In this line, P2P can be used to create social networks and communities, to discover users and information, to aggregate community contents or even as a communication medium for large groups.

The COPS'10 workshop is at its fifth edition and aims to discuss new research ideas and applications in the young area of P2P. We encourage people to present and discuss their results to contribute to the development of a technology and of a shared vision of the field.
