Gossip-based aggregation in large dynamic networks
We propose a gossip-based protocol for computing aggregate values over network components in a fully decentralized fashion and demonstrate its efficiency and robustness under a variety of scenarios including node and communication failures. Expand
PeerSim: A scalable P2P simulator
The key features of peer-to-peer (P2P) systems are scalability and dynamism. Expand
T-Man: Gossip-based fast overlay topology construction
We present a gossip protocol called T-Man that can build a wide range of overlay networks from scratch, relying only on minimal assumptions. Expand
Edge-centric Computing: Vision and Challenges
A vision of human-centered edge-device based computing in which humans are part of the computation and decision making loop, resulting in a human-centric system design. Expand
Anthill: a framework for the development of agent-based peer-to-peer systems
We describe Anthill, a framework to support the design, implementation and evaluation of P2P applications based on ideas such as multi-agent and evolutionary programming borrowed from CAS. Expand
Messor: Load-Balancing through a Swarm of Autonomous Agents
This paper presents Messor, a decentralized load-balancing algorithm based on techniques such as multi-agent systems drawn from CAS. Expand
Epidemic-style proactive aggregation in large overlay networks
Aggregation - that is, the computation of global properties like average or maximal load, or the number of nodes - is an important basic functionality in fully distributed environments. Expand

This paper describes SG-1, a novel generic mechanism for the construction and the maintenance of overlay topologies based on superpeers. Expand
Design patterns from biology for distributed computing
We propose a conceptual framework that captures several basic biological processes in the form of a family of design patterns. Expand
Group Communication in Partitionable Systems: Specification and Algorithms
Gives a formal specification and an implementation for a partitionable group communication service in asynchronous distributed systems where certain stability conditions hold. Expand
