Seventh International Workshop on
Hot Topics in Peer-to-Peer Systems (Hot-P2P 2010)

In conjunction with IPDPS 2010
Atlanta, USA -- April 23, 2010

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems are decentralized, self-organizing distributed
systems that cooperate to exchange data. These systems have emerged as the
dominant consumers of residential Internet subscribers' bandwidth, and are
being increasingly used in many different application domains. In the last few
years, research on P2P systems has been quite intensive, and has produced
remarkable results in scalability, robustness, location, distributed storage,
and system measurements. Consequently, P2P systems continue to evolve,
differentiating today's state-of-the-art from earlier instantiations such as
Napster, KaZaA, Gnutella, and Morpheus.

The International Workshop on Hot Topics in Peer-to-Peer Systems (Hot-P2P)
aims to bring together researchers and practitioners, from both industry and
academia, in the fields of systems, networking, and theory, and to represent an
occasion to share latest research results and ideas on P2P systems, thereby
promoting research activities in this area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* P2P applications and infrastructures
* Performance evaluation and workload characterization
* Trust and reputation in P2P systems
* Security and privacy in P2P systems
* Routing and fault-tolerance in P2P systems
* Resource discovery/management in P2P systems
* Network support for P2P systems
* Self-organization and self-management in P2P environments

Submission deadline: Monday, November 19th, 2009
Notification of acceptance/rejection: Monday, January 4th, 2010
Camera ready version due: Monday, February 1st, 2010 (same as IPDPS)

Management System. Papers should be up to 8 pages, using IEEE's two column
format and include the author's name, affiliation and contact details.

Detailed information on electronic submission are provided on the web site
of the workshop (

Papers will be selected based on scientific rigor, originality, novelty, and
presentation quality. By submitting a paper to Hot-P2P, the authors guarantee
that their papers are not currently submitted or accepted for publication
elsewhere. Each paper will be reviewed by at least 3 anonymous referees
appointed by the Program Committee.

A condition of submission is that an author attends to give the presentation.

The IPDPS Proceedings, including all the workshop papers, will be published in
the IEEE Computer Society digital library. A CD containing full papers will be
given to the participants attending the conference and/or workshops, the
abstracts will be published on paper.
