Conference Call for Papers

Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) have the potential to disrupt any domain involving coordination among autonomous resources. This includes finance and payments (e.g., fintech), but also networks (e.g., power grids or telecom networks), computing (e.g., brokering of edge resources), IoT (e.g., supply chain, V2X 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 disruptive new distributed business models.
