In this work, we present a distributed event-based awareness approach for P2P groupware systems. The awareness of collaboration will be achieved by using primitive operations and services that are integrated into the P2P middleware. We propose an abstract model for achieving these requirements and we discuss how this model can support awareness of collaboration in mobile teams. In this paper, we present a Fuzzy Peer Coordination Quality System (FPCQS) for P2P networks according to four parameters. We consider Peer Mobility (PM) as a new parameter. We evaluated the performance of proposed system by computer simulations. The simulation results show that when AA and GS are increased, the PCQ is increased. But, by increasing PCC, the PCQ is decreased. Comparing the complexity, by adding PM the proposed system is more complex than the system with three input parameters, but it has better peer coordination quality.
