CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue on "Blockchain and Decentralized Solutions for Social Good"
IET Networks


Social good can be perceived as people uniting to create a positive societal impact. In recent years, the engineering community has seen an increase of research relating to social good. In terms of technology, Blockchain, distributed ledger technologies, and decentralized technologies in general such as IPFS, have had an impact on improving social good, such as blockchain technologies being applied to improve e-health and IoT.

The aim of this Special Issue is to address the questions ‘How does Blockchain impact the social good, and how can decentralization improve ICT industries?’ This Special issue will debate the concepts and implications of blockchain technology, how it can be a driver of innovation and have positive effects on our societies, industry, legal systems, and economic/financial systems. This Special Issue will provide both academic and industrial researchers a forum to discuss the impact, future, and limitations of blockchain technology regarding its effect across specific industries, economic, finance, law, etc.
Authors of selected papers presented at BANDIT 2021, GoodIT 2021 and DICG 2021 will be invited to submit extended versions of their work. The special issue is also open to unsolicited submissions. Authors can submit papers that are within the special issue’s aims and scope directly to the journal’s submission system.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

– Blockchain and decentralized architectures and algorithms
– Protocols for management and access using blockchain
– Consensus and mining algorithms suited for Social Good
– Security and privacy in Blockchains and decentralized platforms
– Blockchain applications in IoT, healthcare, business, manufacturing, industry, mobile communications, and wireless networks
– Decentralized technology for social media
– Blockchain in social networking
– AI for decentralization
