Call for Papers

Following the success of its previous edition, we are pleased to announce the 2nd International Workshop on Blockchains and Smart Contracts (BSC 2019), which will be held in conjunction with the 10th IFIP International Conference on New Technologies, Mobility and Security (NTMS 2019).

Blockchain has recently emerged as a disruptive technology that may revolutionize the world economy and our societies, with applications in key industries including finance, insurance, energy, mobility, healthcare and logistics. A blockchain is typically a decentralized, trustless and continuously growing ledger that is used to record and keep track of every transactions across a peer-to- peer network of participants.

This technology is secure by design and leverages well known cryptographic protocols and distributed consensus algorithms to provide key characteristics, such as resilience, fault-tolerance, persistence, anonymity, auditability and data immutability. More recently, smart contracts, backed by the blockchain technology, have emerged as a promising means for automating the execution of business workflows and enforcing legal contracts, in a fully decentralized way and without the need for any trusted third parties. However, there are still major research challenges that need to be overcome to unlock the tremendous potential of blockchains, and before enabling a mass market penetration and adoption.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together experts from various domains to explore the current state of the art of blockchains and its related challenges, and to discuss new ideas and innovations to design scalable and robust blockchain solutions that are technically, economically and legally viable.

The workshop invites both academic researchers and industry practitioners to submit original and previously unpublished contributions covering the theoretical and practical aspects of the blockchain technology, smart contracts and their applications.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Possible topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Cryptographic algorithms and protocols
- Distributed consensus algorithms
- Peer-to- peer communication protocols
- Architecture, scalability, governance and interoperability
- Smart contracts and workflow automation
- Validation of smart contracts using formal methods
- Decentralized autonomous organization (DAO)
- Data privacy, anonymity and confidentiality
- Data analytics and fraud detection
- Cryptocurrencies, markets and finance
- Crypto economics, incentives and gamification
- Applications, test-beds and platforms
- Regulatory and standards frameworks

IMPORTANT DATES

- Submission Deadline: March 15th, 2019
- Acceptance notification: April 20th 2019
- Camera ready: May 10th 2019
- Workshop date: 24 to 26 June 2019
