3rd Conference on Blockchain Research & Applications
for Innovative Networks and Services (BRAINS 2021)

27-30 September 2021 // Paris, France

Paper Submission Deadline: 31 March 2021

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.

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
- 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, DeFi, NFT apps and protocols

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
- 5G Technologies, Telecom Process and Operation
- Supply chain management
- Connected and autonomous vehicles
- Services or Resources Marketplaces
- Blockchain as a service
- Blockchain-defined networking
