IEEE International Workshop on Blockchain and Smart Contracts (BSC 2020)

Vilnius, Lithuania, July 27-31, 2020 — extended to Dec 2020/Jan 2021 (TBD)

https://qrs20.techconf.org/workshops/bsc

Paper Submission Deadline: May 15, 2020

=================================================================================

In conjunction with IEEE QRS 2020 – The 20th IEEE International Conference on

Software Quality, Reliability, and Security

** The workshop is postponed from July 27-31 to December/January time frame.

It will adopt a hybrid model allowing either in-person or online remote

presentations.

Introduction:

A Blockchain is a distributed ledger for recording transactions, maintained

by many nodes without central authority through a distributed cryptographic

protocol. Smart contracts on top of a blockchain render transactions traceable,

transparent, and irreversible. It is expected that Blockchain and smart contracts

will play an important role in emerging fields such as Internet of Things, Cyber

Physical Systems, social networking, crowdsourcing and next generation wireless

communications. On the other hand, their advances should be further evolved in

terms of scalability, privacy, efficiency, flexibility and high dependability.

The International Workshop on Blockchain and Smart Contracts (IWBS) at QRS intends

to provide a highprofile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and

practitioners to present latest advances and innovations in key theories,

infrastructure, schemes, and significant applications for the Blockchain software,

as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future.

Topic of Interest:

The Workshop welcomes technical papers technical papers which are related to

(but not limited to) the following topics:

– Theoretical study on blockchain and smart contacts

– Blockchain consensus protocols

– Executable law, context-awareness, consistency, monitoring

– Solution to scalability of blockchain

– Benchmarking and performance study

– Algorithm design, complexity analysis, implementation for blockchain

– Security, privacy, and reliability of blockchain and smart Contracts

– Novel applications based on blockchain and smart contracts

Important Dates:

– Paper submission due: May 15, 2020
