Seventh Workshop on
    Large Scale Distributed Virtual Environments, LSDVE 2019
      in conjunction of Euro-Par 2019

                  Goettingen, August 26-27  2019               

The recent advances in networking have determined an increasing use of information technology to support distributed networked cooperative applications. Several novel applications have emerged in this area: social networks, distributed cryptocurrencies, collaborative work and many other ones. In particular, an interesting technology recently adopted to handle cryptocurrencies (such as bitcoin) is the block-chain technology, that has now taken the more general role to handle several distributed applications. Furthermore, peer to peer, Internet of Things, Smart-cities, distributed
sensing are examples of modern ICT paradigms that aim to describe globally
cooperative infrastructures built upon objects' intelligence and self-configuring capabilities.
This workshop aims to provide a venue for researchers to present and discuss important aspects of large scale networked collaborative applications and of the platforms supporting them. The definition of these applications requires to afford several challenges, like the design of user interfaces, coordination protocols, and proper middle-ware and architectures. The track's aim is to investigate open challenges for such applications, related to both the applications design and to the definition of proper supports. Some important challenges are, for instance, adaptation of the classical block-chain technology to support collaborative applications, protocols design, distributed consensus algorithms, privacy and security issues.
The workshop will both present assessment of current state and introduce
further directions.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
● Distributed Large Scale Collaborative Environments (LSCE) and           applications
● Distributed online social networks
● Distributed Environments for Social Media
● Internet of Things (IoT) applications
● Distributed sensing
● Distributed Gaming
● Distributed cryptocurrencies
● Block-chain applications: IoT, e-health, supply chain
● Platforms for LSCE: peer to peer, cloud, hybrid
● Block-chain technology to support LSCE
● LSCE as complex networks
● Complex Network analysis
● Big Data processing for LSCE
● Security and Privacy in LSCE
