Call For Papers



5th Conference on Blockchain Research & Applications for Innovative Networks and Services (BRAINS 2023)

Submission deadline extension: ***June 18, 2023***

October 11 - 13, 2023

Paris, France

(In-person conference)

The best technical papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit an extended version for fast-track review in the ACM DLT journal (Distributed Ledger Technologies: Research and Practice).


Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) have the potential to disrupt any domain involving coordination among autonomous resources. This includes finance and payments (e.g., fintech), but also networks (e.g., power grids or telecom networks), computing (e.g., brokering of edge resources), IoT (e.g., supply chain, V2X or industry 4.0) or service platforms (e.g., identity management).
BRAINS conference is dedicated to these new advances that could make the world of networks and services more secure, while enabling new distributed business models.

Submission Guidelines:
Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal and has not been previously published. All submissions should be written in English following Two-Column IEEE Conference Format, with a maximum of eight (8) pages (Full Papers), four (4) pages (Short Papers and work in progress) or two (2) pages (Poster Papers), including text, figures, and references. Papers should be submitted through EDAS at:

Topics of interest

Fundamentals of Blockchain and DLT:
• Theoretical contributions on Blockchain and DLT
• Distributed consensus and fault tolerance solutions, including domain-specific consensus (e.g., for IoT)
• Protocols and algorithms
• Distributed Ledger Analytics
• Tradeoffs between decentralization, scalability, performance, and security
• Sharding and layer 2
• Combination between Blockchain and distributed databases (e.g., IPFS)

Fundamentals of Decentralized Apps, Smart contracts, and chain code:
• Development languages and tooling
• Security, Privacy, Attacks, Forensics
• Transaction Monitoring and Analysis
• Collaboration between on-chain and off-chain code
• Token Economy and incentives
• NFT (Non-Fungible Tokens) and protocols
• Distributed Trust
• Oracles
• Blockchain as a service

Application and service cases of DLT and Smart-Contracts:
• Identity management (e.g., Self-sovereign Identity and Decentralized Identifiers, Open ID Connect)
• Finance and payments
• DeFi (Decentralized Finance)
• IoT and cyber physical systems
• Smart grids and Industry 4.0, including Dataspaces
• Supply chain management
• V2X, connected and autonomous vehicles
• Networking, Edge and Cloud Technologies
• Blockchain for Beyond 5G and 6G Technologies, Telecom Process and Operation
• Blockchain and AI (e.g., for federated learning)
• Services or Resources Marketplaces
• Public sector Blockchain solutions and infrastructures (e.g., EBSI)
• Blockchain for education, public administration, health
• Results from large collaborative projects on these topics
