power grids or telecom networks), computing (e.g., brokering of edge resources),

IoT ( e.g., supply chain or industry 4.0) or service platforms (e.g., identity

management). BRAINS conference is dedicated to these new advances that could

make the world of networks and services more secure, while enabling new

distributed business models.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited, the following:

Fundamentals of Blockchain and DLT

– Theoretical contributions on Blockchain and DLT

– Distributed consensus and fault tolerance solutions, including

domain-specific consensus (e.g., for networking)

– Tradeoffs between decentralization, scalability, performance and security

– Protocols and algorithms

Decentralized Apps, Smart contracts and chain code

– Development languages and tooling

– Security, Privacy, Attacks, Forensics

– Transaction Monitoring and Analysis

– Token Economy

– Distributed Trust

– Collaboration between on-chain and off-chain code

– Oracle

Application and service cases of DLT and Smart-Contracts

– Finance and payments

– IoT and cyber physical systems

– Smart grids and Industry 4.0

– Networking, Edge and Cloud Technologies
