3rd International Workshop on

Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Technology – CBT\’19

In conjunction with ESORICS 2019


September 26-27, 2019,

University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg.


Since the appearance of Bitcoin in 2009, a plethora of new

cryptocurrencies and other blockchain based systems have been deployed

with different success. While some of them are slightly different

copies of Bitcoin, other ones propose interesting improvements or new

usages of the underlying blockchain technology. However, the novelty

of such technologies is often tied with rapid developments and

proof-of-concept software, and rigorous scientific analyses of the

proposed systems are often skipped.

This workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers in this area to

carefully analyze current systems and propose new ones in order to

create a scientific background for a solid development of new

cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology systems.


Submission Deadline: June 25, 2019

Author Notification: July 25, 2019

Camera Ready: August 6, 2019

The main topics include (but are not limited to):

* Anonymity and privacy in cryptocurrencies.

* Privacy-preserving technologies.

* Cryptocurrency based trust systems.

* Security analysis of existing cryptocurrencies.

* Formal threat models in cryptocurrency systems.

* Improvement proposals for existing cryptocurrencies.

* P2P network cryptocurrencies analysis.

* Private transactions in blockchain based systems.

* Consensus mechanisms: proof-of-work, proof of stake,

proof of burn, proof-of-useful-work, etc.

* New usages of the blockchain technology.

* Scalability solutions for blockchain systems.

* Smart contracts.
