Call for Papers

Blockchain is an emerging technology that comprises a set of nodes without a preexisting trust relationship and connected through a peer-to-peer topology. Transactions added onto the blockchain can not be altered, which makes blockchain an ideal solution for assets transactions and identity management, to mention few examples. Each node hosts identical copies of a blockchain creating a decentralized and redundant structure. However, for such a structure to be useful, there must exist mechanisms by which the nodes can mutually reach a consensus on the next valid block in the chain to be added. The consensus mechanisms are protocols that make sure all nodes (devices that maintain the blockchain and, sometimes, process transactions) are synchronized with each other and agree on which transactions are legitimate and are added to the blockchain. Blockchain is also an append-only distributed ledger technology, which provides it a property of immutability. In addition to decentralization, consensus, and immutability, a blockchain network has two additional key characteristics: Provenance and finality. Provenance refers to awareness that participants of the network have about where the asset was originated from and its ownership history, while finality refers to the status of a transaction as complete.

While the focus of blockchain applications in practice has been to build distributed ledgers involving virtual tokens (e.g., crypto-currencies), this technology has recently gained increased attention in several other fields. The impetus has now indeed been extended to other sectors (e.g. healthcare, education, identity management, media and others). The five blockchain essential characteristics enable new forms of distributed software architectures, where agreement on shared states can be established without trusting a central integration point. Moreover, architectural strategies and solution to encompass blockchain in commercial software applications start to be needed given emerging requirements of security, reliability and other important quality attributes.

The purpose of BlockArch workshop is to foster discussions on the possible synergies between blockchain technology and software architecture and how both topics can be related to provide software solutions that rely on blockchain advantages. We expect papers reporting results related (but not limited) to the following topics:

- Design concepts and techniques for creating blockchain-based architectures for software systems.
- Architectural patterns or tactics to satisfy blockchain qualities; namely, decentralization, consensus, immutability finality, and provenance.
- Emerging quality attributes and tactics when Blockchain is used as a platform for more focused domain-related applications (e.g. healthcare, education, retail, etc.).
- New challenges, research problems, emerging trends and industrial case studies for designing robust, secure and scalable blockchain systems.

======Submissions Guidelines=====

We solicit submissions in the following categories:

- Position Papers (2 – 4 pages): Position statements focused on challenges, emerging trends, and research problems
- Full Papers (6 – 8 pages): Original research, empirical study, or systematic literature review
- Industry and Experience Papers (6 – 8 pages): Industrial experience and case studies

Original submissions, not under review elsewhere at the time of submission, will be reviewed by three members of the program committee. A paper submission should comply with IEEE proceedings format. The accepted papers will be published as part of the ICSA 2024 Companion proceedings, and appear in IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Each submission will be reviewed for the aspects related to the statement of the problem, significance of research, related work/literature review, methodology, quality of data or findings, results and conclusion, readability and writing style. Accepted submissions will be presented as short talks or posters at the workshop.

Papers can be submitted using the following link:


BlockArch 2024 : Fifth IEEE International Workshop on Blockchain-based Architectures will take place in Hyderabad, India. It’s a 5 days event starting on Jun 4, 2024 (Tuesday) and will be winded up on Jun 8, 2024 (Saturday).

BlockArch 2024 falls under the following areas: BLOCKCHAIN, DECENTRALIZATION, SOFTWARE QUALITY, etc. Submissions for this Workshop can be made by Feb 18, 2024. Authors can expect the result of submission by Mar 17, 2024. Upon acceptance, authors should submit the final version of the manuscript on or before Mar 31, 2024 to the official website of the Workshop.

Please check the official event website for possible changes before you make any travelling arrangements. Generally, events are strict with their deadlines. It is advisable to check the official website for all the deadlines.
