HotPOST 2012 will be held in Macau in Jun. 2012, co-located with IEEE ICDCS'12
Peer-to-peer (P2P) systems and applications are widely used in today's Internet and produce the most significant portion of its traffic. The increasing penetration of wireless technologies, the popularity of mobile and handheld devices, and the rapid growth of their user base call for innovative algorithms, protocols, and applications that benefit from infrastructure-less P2P technologies to support ever-increasing demand.
Following the success of the predecessor of HotPOST; P2PNet'09 in St.-Petersburg and P2PNet'10 in Shanghai, this year's event further expands its scope to include online social networks (OSNs) as well. By attracting more than half a billion users worldwide, OSNs are a new venue of innovation with many challenging and practical research problems. In particular, more and more P2P applications involve social information to enhance the user experience. Also, P2P based solutions play an important role in preventing OSN from privacy violations.
This workshop is organized with the objective of bringing together researchers working on the intersection of both topics to present and discuss their latest research results and ideas, thereby promoting the development and evolution of this area. All submissions on P2P and OSN related to architecture, design, implementation, simulation, analysis and measurement are welcomed. We highly encourage novel and innovative previously unpublished work, even reporting work in early stage.
Topic include but are not limited to:
Papers accepted for HotPOST 2011 workshop will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. All accepted papers will be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by EI. The technical program committee will select one winner for the Best Paper Award and two winners for the Best Paper Runner-up.
Paper submission: September 7, 2011 (Firm
deadline, no further extensions will be granted)
