Product description

Peer-to-peer(P2P)computinghasattractedsigni?cantmediaattention,initially spurred by the popularity of ?le-sharing systems such as Napster, Gnutella, and Morpheus. MorerecentlysystemslikeBitTorrentandeDonkeyhavecontinuedto sustain that attention. New techniques such as distributed hash-tables (DHTs), semantic routing, and Plaxton Meshes are being combined with traditional c- cepts such as Hypercubes, Trust Metrics, and caching techniques to pool - gether the untapped computing power at the "edges" of the Internet. These new techniques and possibilities have generated a lot of interest in many industrial organizations,and resulted in the creation of a P2P working group on standa- ization in this area (http://www. irtf. org/charter?gtype=rg&group=p2prg). In P2P computing, peers and services forego central coordination and - namically organize themselves to support knowledge sharing and collaboration, in both cooperative and non-cooperative environments. The success of P2P s- tems strongly depends on a number of factors. First, the ability to ensure eq- table distribution of content and services. Economic and business models which rely on incentive mechanisms to supply contributions to the system are being developed, along with methods for controlling the "free riding" issue. Second, the ability to enforce provision of trusted services. Reputation-based P2P trust management models are becoming a focus of the research community as a - able solution. The trust models must balance both constraints imposed by the environment (e. g. , scalability) and the unique properties of trust as a social and psychological phenomenon.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Agents and Peer-to-Peer Computing, AP2PC 2007, held in Honululu, Hawaii, USA, in May 2007, in the context of the 6th International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems, AAMAS 2007. The 8 revised full papers presented together with 1 summary paper were carefully reviewed and selected from 14 initial submissions; they are fully revised to incorporate reviewers' comments and discussions at the workshop. The volume is organized in topical sections on agent and peer trust, performance and testing, grid and distributed computing, as well as location and search services.
