      The First International Workshop on Dependable and Sustainable Peer-to-Peer
      Systems (DAS-P2P 2006) is the first workshop which focuses on dependability
      and sustainability of P2P systems, with respect to their designs,
      applications and social impacts.

      Peer-to-Peer (P2P) can be a promising technology on which we can depend
      of ours and our children, 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 introduction of single
      of failure, but also assuring a level of autonomy which allows many of
      us to
      spontaneously start, maintain, or recover from failures of, such systems.

      Although difficulties exist, such as uncertainty in the trust among
      participants, one needs to be aware that such difficulties are, in many
      due to our own human nature; depending on P2P is, in fact and literally,
      depending on ourselves and our friends, which 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, and
      set forth research agendas and suggestive future directions by
      among researchers with different disciplines and with similar interests
      dependability and sustainability.

      The following is a non-exhaustive list of relevant topics:

      ** Designs and operations of dependable and sustainable P2P systems
      - Self-organization and emergence
      - Attack-resistance
      - Fault tolerance
      - Sustainable operations
      - Sustainable mutual trust
      - Sustainable reciprocal relationships

      ** Applications and social impacts of dependable and sustainable P2P
      - Sustainable economy
      - Sustainable governance
      - Sustainable lifestyles
      - Rescue activities
      - Post-catastrophic recovery
      - Tackling environmental problems

      The program of the workshop will be a combination of invited talks, paper
      presentations and discussions.


      The workshop invites your contributions of previously unpublished
      papers, which
      will be selected based on their originality, technical merit and topical
      relevance. Papers will also be selected by the likelihood that they will
      to interesting and fruitful discussions at the workshop.

      Your contributions should be formatted acoording to the IEEE Computer
      Press Proceedings Author Guidelines: 10-point Times, single-spaced,
      format (see http://www.tinmith.net/tabletop2006/IEEE/Format/instruct.htm
      detail). Each of your contributions should not exceed 8 pages.

      See the workshop web site (http://das-p2p.wide.ad.jp/) for the submission
