The aim of the workshop is to investigate the promise of peer-to-peer (P2P) systems for advanced data management applications. The benefits of a P2P architecture is scalability based on autonomic peers which may at any moment join/leave the network, publish resources (data and services) for sharing, use resources published by other peers and eventually take part in a collaborative work process. Furthermore, applications manipulate heterogeneous, semantically rich data, and thus require more advanced functionalities than the simple key-based file sharing and retrieval usually proposed by the first P2P systems. Enhanced services must be available, for resource access and sharing, managing logical clusters (communities of interest), handling replication, distributed query and transaction processing, information discovery and accessibility, semantic interoperation and composition of active information services. Also, market-based mechanisms are needed to allow negotiated resource allocation, as well as cooperative and non cooperative information exchanges. Finally, P2P environments need scalable data structures and infra structures, in order to adapt to a growing number of clients and continuously growing amounts of data, such as the case of data streams.

The workshop co-location with EDBT, one of the major international database conference, is important in order to actually bring together key researchers working on databases, distributed systems and P2P. The objective of this one-day workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the challenges and propose novel solutions in the design and implementation of advanced data management in P2P environments.

Workshop post-proceedings will be published by the ACM Digital Library

  • Indexing, caching and replication techniques for P2P systems
  • Transaction and workflow management for P2P Systems
  • Metadata management and use in P2P systems
  • Dynamic schema integration, Interoperability
  • Self-organization in P2P systems
  • Community of interest management
  • Scalable Data Structures for P2P systems
  • Discovery and composition of P2P services
  • Negotiated services and resources allocation in P2P systems.
