Call for Contributions
ChainScience brings together researchers, practitioners, and industry experts across disciplines to discuss novel developments in blockchains, distributed ledger technologies, and decentralized technologies. The focus topic for this year's conference extends to include related topics in artificial intelligence. Computer scientists, security researchers, economists, and data scientists are the primary target of this conference. In structure, ChainScience follows the traditional open format primarily based on submitted and peer-reviewed work.

* Blockchain Forensics
* Blockchain Interoperability
* Blockchain Macroeconomics
* Blockchain Modeling and Analytics
* Blockchain Oracles and Data Integration
* Computation over Encrypted Data
* Design and Analysis of P2P Networks
* Formal Modeling of Tokenization
* Formal Proving Methods
