Performance Modeling and Evaluation of Peer-to-Peer Computing Systems

To appear in  Performance Evaluation: An International Journal

Peer-to-peer computing systems have emerged as the dominant consumer
of residential Internet subscribers' bandwidth.  These systems
continue to evolve, differentiating today's state-of-the-art from
earlier instantiations such as Napster, KaZaA, Gnutella, and Morpheus.
Peer-to-peer systems are characterized as being decentralized,
self-organizing distributed systems that cooperate to exchange
data. Designing protocols for Peer-to-Peer (P2P) environments is an
exciting research area that has produced remarkable results in
scalability, robustness, location, distributed storage, and system

This special issue is dedicated to recent advances in P2P computing
systems, specifically focusing on performance evaluation and
optimization of these systems.  The topics of interest include, but
are not limited to:

    * Performance modeling of P2P protocols
    * Performance evaluation of incentives for computing in P2P environments
    * Performance evaluation of trust and security in P2P computing
    * Traffic management for P2P computing systems
    * Algorithms for computing and performance implications in P2P environments
    * Quantitative analysis of Peer-to-Peer infrastructure and overlay networks
    * Protocols for resource management/discovery/reservation/scheduling and 
	their evaluation
    * Analytical modeling of security and anti-censorship issues in 
	Peer-to-Peer systems
    * Performance and measurements issues of Peer-to-Peer systems such as
	 fault tolerance, scalability, availability, and accessibility
    * Quality of Service for Peer-to-Peer networks

SUBMISSION DETAILS: Prospective authors are invited to submit their
original and previously unpublished papers via the on-line submission
site.  The authors are encouraged to submit by e-mail an electronic
copy of the paper in pdf or ps format.  Contributed papers may not
exceed 25 double-spaced pages including all figures and illustrations.
The first page of the submission should include the title, the names
and affiliations of the authors, including complete postal and e-mail
addresses, telephone, and fax numbers, a 150-word abstract, and 5-7
index terms (keywords). Submitted papers will undergo the standard
review procedures of the journal of Performance Evaluation.
