3 P2P framework Peer to peer (P2P) frameworks are parts of distributed architectures, the services described in the last chapters are encompassed in this new paradigm. Opposed to the hype surrounding emerging services such as Napster, Scour, Gnutella and others, peer to peer technology has existed for 80 years. It is the convergence of two trends: 1. A political one, aiming to decentralise fully the applications in order to optimise availability and scaling. 2. A technical one, following the increasing power of computers and high throughput of networks.

Effectiveness) of multimodality in situations of interaction with more or less simulated multimodal systems. From the point of view of the user, these studies made it possible to show how the users combine various modalities to interact with the systems and in which cases they use multimodality. Certain studies, such that of Oviatt, DeAngeli, & Kuhn (1997) for example, thus showed that multimodality is not always used (approximately 20% of the time of a session of interaction); the cases of use of this appear when the users describe in their commands some spacial information (for example: localisation, size, orientation or shape of an object).
