6thIEEE International Workshop on
Mobile Peer-to-Peer Computing (MP2P’09)
Dallas, Texas, USA, March 16 - 20, 2009
In conjunction with the 7th IEEE International Conference on
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) computing is a networking and distributed computing paradigm which allows the sharing of computing resources and services by direct, symmetric interaction between computers. With the advance in mobile wireless communication technology and the increasing number of mobile users, P2P computing, in both academic research and industrial development, has recently begun to extend its scope to address problems relevant to mobile devices and wireless networks. The special characteristics of mobile environments, such as highly variable connectivity, disconnection, location-dependency, energy and resource sensitivity, and the diversity in wireless networks as well as carrier-grade performance requirements bring new challenges for research in mobile P2P computing.
MP2P’08 is intended to serve as a continuing forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to exchange and discuss their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of mobile P2P computing and communications. It will address the challenges, technologies, and architectures leading to real-world solutions that provide users with direct access and control of their critical peer-based information and services, regardless of location or device.
The principal theme of MP2P’08 is the peer-to-peer paradigm as used in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETS), sensor networks, and large-scale heterogeneous overlays.Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
- Peer-to-peer overlays for MANETs and sensor networks
- Hybrid P2P architectures for integrated MANETs and wide-area networks
- Large-scale heterogeneous P2P systems
- Mobility in federated overlay architectures
- Impact of network mobility on P2P systems and services (mobile IP / MANET)
- P2P-based information sensing and fusion
- MP2P performance & measurement studies
- Semantic routing & overlay routing in MP2P
- Delay tolerant MP2P systems
- Resource and service discovery in MP2P
- Resource exchange mechanisms in MP2P
- Peer access and control in mobile environment
- Data exchange and rendering techniques for mobile P2P devices
- Secure communication protocols for MP2P
- Nature-inspired algorithms for MP2P
- Novel MP2P applications & services
- Theoretical issues on mobile information diffusion
- MP2P SIP
- MP2P messaging systems, monitoring systems, searching systems, games, etc.
- Location dependent MP2P services
- MP2P over different bearer services: 2.5/3G (GPRS/UMTS) / 802.11 (WLAN)
- MP2P & operator/provider requirements
- Reliability and carrier-grade performance of MP2P services

SubmissionsPapers should be submitted to easychair.org, using mp2p09 as the conference.
Note, this is different from PerCom 2009 which uses EDAS for its paper submissions.
Papers should be formatted using the same templates as PerCom's submission guidelines, but final workshop papers are restricted to 5 pages in the proceedings.
Papers due: November 4, 2008 (extended)
Notification of acceptance: November 18, 2008
Camera-ready papers due: December 15, 2008
