On behalf of the 9th International Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Systems
(IPTPS '10) program committee, we are inviting you to submit engaging
position papers on the current and future trends in peer-to-peer

Co-located with NSDI '10 in San Jose, CA, this one-day workshop provides
a venue in which to present and discuss peer-to-peer technologies,
applications, and systems and to identify key research issues and
challenges that lie ahead.

This year, the workshop's charter will be expanded to include topics
relating to self-organizing and self-managing distributed systems. This
is in response to recent trends where self-organizing techniques
proposed in early peer-to-peer systems have found their way into more
managed settings such as datacenters, enterprises, and ISPs to help deal
with growing scale, complexity, and heterogeneity. In the context of
this year's workshop, peer-to-peer systems are defined to be large-scale
distributed systems that are mostly decentralized, are self-organizing,
and might or might not include resources from multiple administrative

Papers will be selected based on originality, likelihood of spawning
insightful discussion, and technical merit. The program will include
presentations of position papers along with plenty of time for lively
discussion among the participants, as well as a demo session for working

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Network and system support for peer-to-peer systems
* Self-organizing and self-managing distributed systems
* Adaptive algorithms and architectures for large-scale distributed
* New applications and protocols for peer-to-peer systems
* Availability, robustness, performance, and scaling
* Security, privacy, anonymity, anti-censorship, and incentives
* Lessons drawn from experience with deployed peer-to-peer systems
* Measurement, modeling, and workload characterization

Complete paper submissions are due Friday, December 18, 2009, 11:59
p.m. EST.
