The 3rd International Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Systems (IPTPS'04)
provides a forum for researchers to discuss the state-of-the-art in
peer-to-peer computing and to identify key research challenges in the
area.  IPTPS'04 will continue and build on the success of the first
two IPTPS workshops in 2002 and 2003.

The goal of the workshop is to examine peer-to-peer technologies,
applications, and systems, and also to identify key research issues
and challenges that lie ahead.  In the context of this workshop,
peer-to-peer systems are characterized as being decentralized,
self-organizing distributed systems, in which all or most
communication is symmetric.  Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

     * peer-to-peer applications and services
     * peer-to-peer systems and infrastructures
     * peer-to-peer algorithms
     * security in peer-to-peer systems
     * robustness in peer-to-peer systems
     * anonymity and anti-censorship
     * performance of peer-to-peer systems
     * workload characterization for peer-to-peer systems
     * experience with deployed peer-to-peer systems

The workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in
the fields of systems, networking, and theory.  The program of the
workshop will be a combination of invited talks, presentations of
position papers, and discussions.  To ensure a productive workshop
environment, attendance will be limited to about 50 participants who
are active in the field.  Each potential participant should submit a
position paper of 5 pages or less that exposes a new problem,
advocates a specific solution, or reports on actual experience.  Two
columns are acceptable, but the font size must be no smaller than
11pt.  Participants will be invited based on the originality,
technical merit, and topical relevance of their submissions, as well
as the likelihood that the ideas expressed in their submissions will
lead to insightful technical discussions at the workshop.  Please do
not submit abbreviated versions of journal or conference papers.
