BRAIN 2021 : 2nd IEEE Workshop on Blockchain theoRy and ApplicatIoNs


When Sep 5, 2021 - Sep 5, 2021
Where Athens (or online)
Submission Deadline Jul 1, 2021
Notification Due Jul 18, 2021
Final Version Due Jul 25, 2021

Call For Papers


- Deadline has been extended to July 1, 2021

- Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of Elsevier Journal: Blockchain Theory and Applications.

A blockchain protocol is employed to implement a tamper free distributed ledger which stores transactions created by the nodes of a P2P network and agreed upon through a distributed consensus algorithm, avoiding the need for a central authority. Blockchain technology has a great potential to radically change our socio-economical systems by guaranteeing secure transactions between untrusted entities, reducing their cost and simplifying many processes. Such a technology is going to be exploited in many areas like IoT, social networking, health care, electronic voting and so on. Even if several applications are already leveraging its disruptive potentials, further research and development is required for several challenging aspects like scalability, efficiency, privacy and support of complex queries, both from a theoretical and applicative point of view. This workshop aims to provide a venue for researchers from both academy and industry to present and discuss important topics on blockchain technology. The workshop’s goal is to present results on both theoretical and more applicative open challenges, as well as to provide a venue to showcase the current state of existing proposals.

Topic of interest include but are not limited to:

-Blockchain Protocols

- Distributed consensus Algorithms

- Permissioned vs permissionless paradigms

- Scalability issues

- P2P communication protocols

- Inter-ledger protocols

- Smart contracts automatic verification

- dApp software engineering aspects

- layer-2 payment protocols, lightning networks

- legal Aspect (smart contract, utility and security tokens, ICO,...)

- Blockchain data analysis

- Analysis of transaction graphs

- Social media analysis correlation studies

- Cryptocurrencies exchange rate analysis

- Illicit activity tracking and analysis

- Blockchain data visualization

- Blockchain applications

- Blockchain for IoT

- Blockchain based social media

- Distributed supply chains

- Distributed notaries

- Blockchain in health care

- Blockchain for telecommunications

- Smart Contracts and dApp software engineering aspects

- Cryptocurrencies
