This workshop scientifically addresses recent research efforts in the field of blockchain technology use for cross-organizational collaboration. The workshop focuses on the application of information and communication technology in order to enable organizational and governmental service provisions. The resulting technology-mediated processes are changing the delivery of private and public services as well as the broader interactions between citizens, governments and organizations. More and more countries are considering e-governance solutions as a tool to improve efficiency and transparency of their services. However, there exists a gap of understanding the support of trust and reputation via blockchain solutions that allow for immutable event traceability. The workshop aims for exploring systematic approaches for developing and interrelating blockchain-technology supported services as well as increasing issues concerning blockchain-tech enabled security and privacy of personal data use. In addition, technological advances in the field of big data analysis, blockchains for distributed application deployment, smart contracts, the Internet-of-Things, agent technologies, etc., offer new research directions in the blockchain-technology space for further improvements of existing solutions.

The goal of this workshop is to promote, establish and speed up blockchain-technology related research, and identify future research questions. Contributions should focus on clearly stated research questions covering the topics mentioned below.
