      Call for Book Chapters

      Title: Handbook of Peer-to-Peer Networking

      Book Editors: Xuemin (Sherman) Shen, Heather Yu, John
      Buford, and Mursalin Akon

      Publisher: Springer

      The Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing model has already
      been established as an important model for distributed
      computing. In this computing model an extremely large
      number of users collaborate and share their resources.
      The traditional central server oriented service
      distribution employs either client-server or push
      models. However, this kind of services is neither
      robust nor scalable, as well as suffers from a single
      point of failure. In contrast, the P2P computing model
      is characterized by collaboration among peers,
      decentralized service points, self-organization,
      autonomy, and heterogeneity. This emerging model for
      service distribution has attracted a great attention
      from both academia and industry. The introductions of
      early P2P applications - Napster, Gnutella, KaZaA and
      BitTorrent - were followed by a tremendous success
      among the user communities. The initial success was
      followed by other more interesting and complex
      applications, such as in information store and
      retrieval, teleconference, and audio-video streaming.
      Concurrently, research communities are excited by the
      potential future growth of the model.

      This book focuses on the fundamentals of peer-to-peer
      computing model, networks and applications along with
      a comprehensive study of recent advancements. In
      addition,   discussions on crucial design choices,
      open problems, possible solution strategies will be of
      great interest.

      The topics of interest include, but are not limited
      to, the following:
      * Introduction to peer-to-peer computing
      * Structured P2P Network Architectures
      * Unstructured P2P Network Architectures
