Effectively, the two fields of peer-to-peer computing and grid computing collectively form the de facto basis for the methodologies and techniques that need to be used to develop performance-driven service-oriented software platforms capable of satisfying key aspects of quality of service.

The Handbook of Research on P2P and Grid Systems for Service-Oriented Computing: Models, Methodologies, and Applications addresses the need for peer-to-peer computing and grid paradigms in delivering efficient service-oriented computing. This critical mass of the most sought after research serves as a collection of chapters facilitating a broad understanding of the subject matter useful to researchers and doctoral students working specifically in the deployment, implementation, and study of related topics including distributed computing, software engineering, Web services, and modeling of business processes.

Nick Antonopoulos is currently the Head of School of Computing and Assistant Dean (Research) of the Faculty of Business, Computing & law at the University of Derby, UK. Prior to joining Derby he was a Senior Lecturer (US Associate Professor) at the Department of Computing, University of Surrey, UK. He holds a BSc in Physics (1st class) from the University of Athens in1993, an MSc in Information Technology from Aston University in 1994 and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Surrey in 2000. Before joining the academia he has worked as a networks consultant and was the co-founder and director of a company developing Web-based management information systems. He has over 10 years of academic experience during which he has designed and has been managing advanced Masters programmes in computer science at the University of Surrey. He has published about 70 articles in fully refereed journals and international conferences. He has received a number of best paper awards in conferences and graduated 6 PhD students. He was the organiser and chair of the 1st International Workshop on Computational P2P networks and the 1st International Workshop on Service-Oriented P2P Networks (as part of IEEE Symposium in Cluster Computing and the Grid, CCGrid 2009). He is currently the organiser and chair of the 1st International Conference on Advances in P2P Systems to take place in Malta, October 2009, sponsored by IEEE. He is on the editorial board of the Springer journal of Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications and on the advisory editorial board of the IGI Global Handbook of Research on Telecommunications Planning and Management for Business. He is a Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy and a full member of the British Computer Society. His research interests include emerging technologies such as large scale distributed systems and peer-to-peer networks, software agent architectures and security.

George Exarchakos is a Researcher in P2P Computing having completed his PhD in the Department of Computing at the University of Surrey, in 2009. He successfully completed the BSc in Informatics and Telecommunications of the University of Athens in 2004. The same year joined the MSc in Advanced Computing at Imperial College London to complete it in 2005. He collaborated with Network Operation Centre of the University of Athens from 2003 till 2004. His achievements include one best paper award in the International Network Conference 2006 and a best presentation award in the IEEE DEST 2008: International Conference on Digital Ecosystems and Technologies. Since the start of his PhD in 2005 he has contributed to peer-review journals and international conferences with 10 articles. He is involved in the organisation of a number of conferences such as the ComP2P 2008 (First International Workshop on Computational P2P Networks: Theory and Practice), IEEE CCGrid 2009 International Workshop on Service-Oriented P2P Networks and as chair of the program committee of the International Conference on Advances in P2P systems. His teaching experience the last three years includes tutorials, coursework marking and lab support on Software Agents, P2P networks, Artificial Intelligence and Object Oriented Programming modules. His research interests cover the areas of decentralized resource sharing technologies like peer-to-peer networks, cloud computing, cluster computing, software agent platforms and network dynamics modelling.
