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
