Special Issue: "Machine Learning Algorithms for Self-organizing Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Network"

Introduction/Call for Papers

In recent years, the internet has been growing rapidly as new services have been implemented in the market every day. However, network traffic generated from the network protocols and applications needs to be categorized which is considered as a critical task in day-to-day network management. Especially, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) network has the largest share of the bandwidth. This large amount of bandwidth has improved the prominence of network traffic engineering. The applications of P2P is growing dramatically, which results in many complex issues such as network congestion and traffic hindrance. More commonly, the effective process of a peer-to-peer network depends on the flexibility of its peer’s communications. However, NATs and traffic filtering have restrict the direct connections between peers on the internet. Modern P2P networks use various methods to solve the issue of restricted connectivity on the Internet. One interesting development is that various overlay networks now support multiple communication protocols to improve resilience and counteract service degradation. On the other hand, various self-reorganization algorithms are recently identified based on the machine learning algorithms to improve the performance, scalability, resilience and reduce the communication cost thereby providing the basis of an efficient neighbor selection scheme for P2P overlays. Moreover, the benefit of reorganization is often lower than the cost incurred in probing and adapting the overlay.
