      (Special issue in Future Generation Computer Systems)

      SUBMISSION DEADLINE: July 1, 2003.


      Peer-to-Peer environments are characterized by large scale (thousands to
      millions of participants), intermittent user and resource participation,
      lack of trust, and lack of centralized control. Designing mechanisms for
      Peer-to-Peer (P2P) environments proved to be a stimulating research problem
      that led to remarkable results in scalability, robustness, location,
      distributed storage, and system measurements. A less addressed and more
      challenging problem is computing in a P2P environment: computation is
      notoriously hard to distribute, yet the potential of harnessing millions of
      computers is tremendous.

      Grid computing focuses on distributing computation on wide-area collections
      of shared resources. P2P and Grid systems share the same focus on harnessing
      resources across multiple administrative domains, but they differ in many
      respects: Grids address support for a variety of (usually, scientific)
      applications and hence focus on providing infrastructure to moderate-sized,
      homogeneous, and partially trusted communities. In contrast, P2P systems
      concentrate on providing support for intermittent participation in
      vertically integrated applications for significantly larger communities of
      untrusted individuals.

      This special issue of Future Generation Computer Systems is dedicated to
      recent advances in P2P computing and the relevant lessons from Grid
      computing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
      * Management of computational resources in large, unreliable networks
      * Incentives for computing in P2P environments
      * Applications for P2P computing
      * Infrastructure for supporting computation in P2P environments
      * Trust and security in P2P computing
      * Lessons from Grids (P2P) relevant to P2P (Grid) computing
      * Algorithms for computing in P2P environments
      * Grid Services and P2P
      * P2P protocols for the Grid


      We invite you to submit a full paper of up to 15 pages describing new and
      original results or a survey on a specific topic. The submitted paper must
      be formatted according to the FGCS rules (Elsevier). For more information,
      please refer to the FGCS home page (www.elsevier.nl/locate/future) and
      select the Author Gateway link in the left bar menu.

      With your submission, please include a cover page with the following:
      * Name, affiliation, address, and e-mail of each author
      * Contact author
      * A maximum of 5 keywords

      A PostScript or PDF version of your paper must be submitted electronically
      to one of the guest editors (see below). Hard copies should be sent only if
      electronic submission is absolutely not possible.


      July 1, 2003: Full paper (in FGCS style) due
      September 15, 2003: Notification of acceptance
      November 1, 2003: Final version due
      Expected date of publication: January 2004.
