Call For Papers

4th Workshop on Blockchain theoRy and ApplicatIoNs - BRAIN 2023 @ IEEE PerCom 2023



4th Workshop on Blockchain theoRy and ApplicatIoNs - BRAIN 2023

held in conjunction with PerCom 2023 (21st IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications)

*********** Paper Submission Deadline 14 November 2022*************

Tentative workshop date: Atlanta (USA), 13th of March 2023


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.

All workshop papers are limited to no more than 6 pages in IEEE format aligned with the IEEE-Percom main conference guidelines.

All submissions will undergo a double-blind review process. As a result, authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions.

The workshop will follow the main conference indications in being a, potentially hybrid, physical/virtual event. The boundary between the two modalities will be defined based on the pandemic conditions worldwide. Currently it is scheduled as a physical event, with a provision for remote participation.

Accepted workshop papers will be included in the IEEE Percom 2023 proceedings and will appear in the IEEE Explore Library.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to an accepted special issue of the international journal ACM Distributed Ledger Technologies: Research and Practice (

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Blockchain Fundamentals
Distributed consensus Algorithms
Permissioned vs permissionless paradigms
Scalability issues
P2P communication protocols
Inter-ledger protocols
Smart contracts automatic verification
layer-2 payment protocols, lightning networks
legal Aspect (smart contract, utility and security tokens, ICO, ...)
Blockchain for pervasive computing
System engineering with IoT and blockchain
Digital identity Management on blockchain
Distributed supply chains
Blockchain-based mobile edge computing systems
Blockchain for Medicine and Healthcare
Blockchain for trustworthiness in 5G and 6G Networks
Blockchain for peer-to-peer energy management
Blockchain-enabled distributed social platforms
Blockchain-based access control
Smart Contracts and dApp software engineering aspects

Workshop Co-Chairs:

Damiano Di Francesco Maesa, University of Pisa, Italy

Laura Ricci, University of Pisa, Italy

Nishanth Sastry, University of Surrey, UK
