In the last few years, software systems are moving towards blockchain technologies since they bring many advantages in different sectors.
Thanks to smart contracts, data can be manipulated and accessed by users like in standard databases. This opportunity, combined with the blockchain potentialities, such as the integrity and immutability of data, guarantees trusted evidence of the information stored and exchanged in the blockchain without relying on a central authority. This makes the blockchain the ideal technology for auditing, verification and sharing purposes, changing significantly the way to design and implement next-generation distributed applications.
Recently, both academia and industry show an increasing interest in blockchain, focusing on trusted data sharing. The scientific results of the workshop have the ambition to change the way to organize, store, retrieve and share data.
From the technical perspective, the workshop can break the technological barriers for data management on blockchain technologies, proposing novel approaches and solutions.
Conceptual, technical, application-oriented and case study contributions are welcomed within the themes of this workshop.
Include (but are not limited to) both theoretical and practical solutions for what follows:
- Blockchain data management
- Blockchain data storage and retrieval
- Blockchain data provenance
