FPDAPP 2022 : 5th Future Perspectives of Decentralized APPlications International Workshop
Call For Papers
FPDAPP 2022 - Call for Papers
5th International Workshop on Future Perspective of Decentralized APPlications
Held in conjunction with the 28th International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing
Glasgow, Scotland, UK
August 22 or 23, 2022
AIM OF THE WORKSHOP
Blockchain technologies (BCTs) make agreement amongst untrusted parties possible, without the need for certification authorities. Proposed frameworks have been put forward in sectors as diverse as finance, health-care, notary, intellectual property management, identity, provenance, international cooperation, social good, and security to cite but a few. Smart contracts, i.e. self-enforcing agreements in terms of executable software running on blockchains, have been developed in several contexts. Such an under-definition computational model introduces innovative aspects, such as the economics and trust of the decentralised computation relying on the shared contribution of peers and their decentralised consensus.
FPDAPP aims to rigorously explore and evaluate the potentiality of such novel decentralised frameworks and applications. Of particular interest is the evaluation and comparison of killer applications that are showing evidence of how BTC can revolutionize their domains or develop new application areas. Evaluation and comparisons are broadly understood, from technical aspects regarding the novel decentralised computer to the possible impact on society, business and the public sector.
FPDAPP is associated with Euro-Par, a premier conference in the field of distributed computing, focuses on matching theory with practice and applications. Importantly, FPDAPP aims to foster the cross-fertilisation between the blockchain and the distributed/parallel computing communities, which can strongly contribute to each other development. In this regard,
TOPICS OF INTEREST includes (but are not limited by)
Blockchain for common goods
Decentralized IoT management
Supply chain management
Blockchain in social networking
Blockchain analysis and monitoring tool
All submitted research papers will be peer-reviewed. Only contributions that are not submitted elsewhere or currently under review will be considered. Revised accepted papers that have been presented at the workshop will be included in the workshop post-proceedings published by Springer. Published papers will be between 10 and 12 pages long.
Submissions must be in PDF format and should not exceed 12 pages (including references) in the Springer LNCS style, which can be downloaded from the Springer Web site (http://www.springer.com/it/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). Complete LaTeX sources must be provided for accepted papers.
Papers can be submitted at the EuroPar2022 workshops' platform, Easychair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=europar2022.
