Call for Papers

The First International Workshop on Mobility in Peer-to-peer Systems 
in conjunction with
The 25th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems 
(ICDCS 2005)

June 6-9, 2005
Columbus, Ohio, USA


Peer-to-peer (P2P) has emerged as a promising paradigm for developing 
distributed systems. P2P systems are characterized as being fully 
self-organizing, and self-repairing. Early P2P systems were designed
with an Internet-like network infrastructure in mind. As the emergence 
and prevalence
of new wireless networking techniques, such as wireless mesh networks, 
wireless LANs,
and 3G cellular networks, the need to move  P2P paradigm into wireless 
and to support mobile computing is increasing.  How does a P2P system 
wired and heterogeneous wireless networks? How does a P2P system exploit and
aggregate the resources in such an environment? How should a P2P system 
node mobility? How should a mobile P2P system ensure security and privacy?
These issues become very challenging. The goal of the workshop is to 
examine the
mobility issues in P2P systems over heterogeneous wired/wireless networks.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* P2P systems over wireless mesh and ad hoc networks
* mobile P2P applications and systems
* power-aware and energy-efficient mobile P2P systems
* topology-aware mobile P2P systems
* mobility and resource management in mobile P2P systems
* P2P systems for wireless grid
* security in mobile P2P systems
* trust and access control in mobile P2P systems
* anonymity and anti-censorship for mobile P2P systems
* modeling and analysis for mobile P2P systems


Authors are invited to submit an electronic version of original, 
unpublished manuscripts,
not to exceed 20 double-spaced pages, to ctking at mx.nthu.edu.tw. Submissions
should be in PDF or Postscript format. Submissions must be received by 
the deadline.
All submitted papers will be refereed by reviewers in terms of 
originality, contribution,
correctness, and presentation. The accepted papers will be published by 
the IEEE
Computer Society Press.
