The Fourth International Workshop on Dependable and Sustainable Peer-to-Peer Systems (DAS-P2P 2009) is a workshop that focuses on dependability and sustainability of peer-to-peer (P2P) systems, with respect to their design, operations, applications, and social impacts.
P2P is a promising technology upon which we can build sustainable societies.
Designs of P2P systems are characterized by their usage of overlay networks such that there is symmetry in the roles among participants. This implies distribution of authorities, not only preventing single points of failure, but also assuring a level of autonomy that allows many of us to spontaneously start, maintain, or recover from failures of such systems.
Although difficulties exist, such as issues of trust among participants, one needs to be aware that such difficulties are, in many parts, due to our own human nature; depending on P2P is, in fact and literally, depending on ourselves and our friends, who seem to be the only ones we can trust anyway, when it comes to our own survival.
The goal of this workshop is to share experiences, insights and new ideas, set forth a research agenda, and suggest future directions by collaborations among researchers in different disciplines and with similar interests toward dependability and sustainability.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of relevant topics:
* Designs and operations of dependable and sustainable P2P systems
o Self-organization and emergence
o Fault tolerance
o Private P2P network
o Accountable anonymity/pseudonymity design
o Local-production-local-consumption network
o Design, analysis, and in-field evaluation of sustainable operations
o Sustainable mutual trust
o Sustainable reciprocal relationships
o Ad-hoc network
o Development processes and tools
* Applications and social impacts of dependable and sustainable P2P systems
o Sustainable economy
o Sustainable governance
o Life style in accordance with the natural environment of the 21st century
o Rescue activities
o Post-catastrophic recovery
o Global optimization of resource allocation and utilization
* Implementations and case studies
