Resource location or discovery is a key issue for Grid systems in which applications are composed of hardware and software resources that need to be located. Classical approaches to Grid resource location are either centralized or hierarchical and will prove inefficient as the scale of Grid systems rapidly increases. On the other hand, the Peer-to-Peer(More)
Resource discovery in a Grid environment is a critical problem, as a typical Grid system includes a very large number of resources, which must be readily identified and accessed to run applications. Traditional Grid discovery algorithms perform poorly, as they do not scale, nor allow Grid-enabled applications to transparently query the whole set of Grid(More)
—Gossip-based Peer-to-Peer protocols proved to be very efficient for supporting dynamic and complex information exchange among distributed peers. They are useful for building and maintaining the network topology itself as well as to support a pervasive diffusion of the information injected into the network. This is very useful in a world where there is a(More)
The convergence of the Grid and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) worlds has led to many solutions that try to efficiently solve the problem of resource discovery on Grids. Some of these solutions are extensions of P2P DHT-based networks. We believe that these systems are not flexible enough when the indexed data are very dynamic, i.e., the values of the resource(More)
—It is often argued that the Future Internet will be a very large scale content-centric network. Scalability issues will stem even more from the amount of content nodes will generate, share and consume. In order to let users become aware and retrieve the content they really need, thesenodes will be required to swiftly react to stimuli and assert the(More)

Locating data on peer-to-peer networks is a complex issue addressed by many P2P protocols. Most of the research in this area only considers static content, that is, it is often assumed that data in P2P systems do not vary over time. In this paper we describe a data location strategy for dynamic content on P2P networks. Data location exploits a distributed(More)
When faced with large amounts of data, human brains are able to swiftly react to stimuli and assert relevance of discovered information, even under uncertainty and partial knowledge. These efficient decision-making abilities rely on so-called <i>cognitive heuristics</i>, which are rapid, adaptive, light-weight yet very effective schemes used by the brain to(More)

The detection of communities of peers characterized by similar interests is currently a challenging research area. To ease the diffusion of relevant data to interested peers, similarity based overlays define links between similar peers by exploiting a similarity function. However, existing solutions neither give a clear definition of peer communities nor(More)
