Abstract

Distributed Computing is becoming more and more led by technological and application advances. Many works consider new computing models compared to the classical closed model with a fixed number of participants and strong hypothesis on communication and structuration. Indeed, it is hard to imagine some application or computational activity and process that falls outside Distributed Computing. Internet and the web (e.g. social networks, clouds) are becoming the main application field for distributed computing. In addition to the classical challenges that developers have to face (asynchrony and failures) they have to deal with load balancing, malicious and selfish behaviors, mobility, heterogeneity and the dynamic nature of participating processes.
