fair resource sharing in self-organizing systems
Optimizing resource usage in a distributed system with autonomous participants comes down to the problem of assuring fairness of resource availability. We study distributed algorithms and mechanisms to enable fair resource sharing in a variety of environments, such as peer-to-peer systems, cloud computing platforms and community sensing.
