Call for papers

With recent tremendous advances in enterprise systems and Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain technology is gaining a growing interest as it responds to several emergent and complex requirements in different application contexts such as supply chain, financial and payment applications as well as networks.

Blockchain platforms are intended to offer a large panel of services and a secure infrastructure for data sharing among distributed systems. The adoption of the Blockchain services is accelerated by cross-sectors synergies with enablers such as the Cloud and Fog technologies as well as the Artificial Intelligence techniques. The Blockchain integration within various domains may bring new security challenges requiring novel approaches and innovative solutions.

The Track on Advances in Blockchain Technologies & Applications (ChainTech'2021) is intended to offer a venue for researchers and practitioners in the field of Blockchain technologies and their applications for presenting their proposals on recent advances related to all theoretical and practical aspects related to Blockchain technology.

Papers reporting novel research contributions are solicited for a broad range of Blockchain related topics that include:

· Fundamentals of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Techniques

· Blockchain platforms & technologies

· Consensus algorithms

· Smart Contracts verification and generation

· Protocols and algorithms based on Blockchain

· Vulnerabilities and attacks in Blockchain-based systems

· Security, privacy and trust of Blockchain and distributed ledger technology

· Access control with Blockchain
