IEEE Symposium on Blockchain, & The [Special Track on Blockchain] at IEEE SMDS 2021

To contribute, authors should submit their papers to the Special Track on Blockchain (organized jointly with the inaugural IEEE Symposium on Blockchain), 2021 IEEE International Conference on Smart Data Services (SMDS).


The inaugural IEEE Symposium on Blockchain at IEEE SERVICES 2021 provides a forum for leading scientists, researchers, community leaders and visionaries from both academia and industry to share their cutting-edge research findings, practical experiences, and particularly the visions of the future roadmap in the area of blockchain.
This forum is dedicated to submissions that promote visionary ideas and blue-sky thinking that will spark transdisciplinary discussions and cutting-edge insights in the major field of blockchain. We aim at exploring breakthrough and innovative ideas which the R&D community should look at when solidifying its key research agenda for the next 10 years.


- Smart data for Blockchains
- Blockchain for smart data services
- Blockchain-based solutions for smart data services
- Blockchain for smart data management
- Blockchain-assisted smart data platforms/architectures
- Blockchain intelligence for data computing

CFP page of IEEE Smart Data Service (SMDS) 2021 includes submission details for a special research paper track on blockchain. A Special Paper Award in Blockchain will be provisioned for the special track. We encourage submitting papers outlining high-risk/high-reward ideas that may open research directions that are not yet well covered today by the blockchain community but are worth their special attention in terms of potential society impact.

The Symposium on Blockchain will feature distinguished speakers from industry and academia, research panels, technical presentations and much more; stay tuned for the agenda. It will be held as a cross-conference symposium at IEEE SERVICES 2021. We extend an invitation to all to participate and make it a success.
