SCOPE
________________________________________________________________________________________


The 5th International Congress on Blockchain and Applications (BLOCKCHAIN'23) will be held in Guimarães from 12th to 14th of July, 2023. This annual congress will bring together researchers and practitioners of blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies (DLT), who will share ideas, projects, lectures, and advances associated with those technologies and their application domains. This meeting will be co-located with the PAAMS’23 conference.

Among the scientific community, the advance in next-generation blockchain and distributed ledger technologies is seen as a promising combination that will transform the production and manufacturing industry, media, finance, insurance, e-government, agriculture, energy, or even medicine. Besides, the combination of DLT with other cutting-edge disruptive technologies (AI, metaverse, quantum computing...) will will open up a multitude of amazing opportunities that entail an interesting challenge of research at the same time.

The BLOCKCHAIN’23 congress is devoted to: promoting the investigation of next-generation blockchain and DLT technologies; exploring the latest ideas, innovations, guidelines, theories, models, technologies, applications and tools of blockchain/DLT combined with other cutting-edge technologies; and identifying critical issues and challenges that researchers and practitioners must deal with in future research. We want to offer researchers and practitioners the opportunity to work on promising lines of research and to publish their developments in this area.

As in previous editions, the best speaker and best student speaker will receive an award sponsored by the MDPI Smart Cities journal (500 CHF and 300 CHF respectively).

DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
________________________________________________________________________________________


The aim of the Doctoral Consortium is to provide a framework as part of which students can present their ongoing research work and meet other students and researchers and obtain feedback on lines of research for the future.

The Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who have a specific research proposal and some preliminary results, but who are still far from completing their dissertation.

All proposals submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will undergo a thorough reviewing process with the aim of providing detailed and constructive feedback. The accepted submissions will be presented at the Doctoral Consortium and published in the conference proceedings.




PUBLICATION
________________________________________________________________________________________


Accepted papers will be included in Blockchain Proceedings, published by Springer.At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the congress proceedings. All accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag.
