[NEW]HotPOST 2012 will be held in Macau in Jun. 2012, co-located with IEEE ICDCS'12
Final program is available.
Dr. Pan Hui (Deutsche Telekom Laboratories) is giving a keynote talk for HotPOST 2011.

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 We highly encourage novel and innovative previously unpublished work, even reporting work in early stage.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:

  • Social network analysis for P2P and distributed computing systems
  • OSN-based systems and designs
  • P2P-based social networking architectures
  • P2P-based solutions to cloud computing and data center problems
  • Evolution of P2P communities and systems
  • Reputation, security, incentives, and economics in P2P systems
  • Mobile P2P and social networking systems
  • P2P overlays, file sharing, and streaming systems
  • User behavior analysis and modeling in OSNs
  • Security and privacy in OSNs
  • Evolutions and dynamics of OSNs and their implications
  • Decentralized OSN Applications
  • Social graph analysis

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)
Acceptance notification: September 30, 2011
Camera ready: October 14, 2011
Author registration: October 7, 2011
