Call for Papers
WEB3SEC brings together blockchain and security researchers, practitioners, industry experts to discuss novel improvements to the security of blockchain systems. Topics of discussion include security techniques and approaches that can serve as building blocks for better distributed ledgers.
In structure, WEB3SEC follows the traditional open format primarily based on submitted and reviewed work; accepted publications will appear in the WEB3SEC proceedings. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Design/analysis of distributed consensus protocols
Secure multiparty computation
Distributed algorithms for data sharing/collaboration
Formal verification of distributed algorithms
Secret sharing schemes in distributed systems
Reputation systems and trust management
Decentralized identity and access management
Secure user-centric privacy-preserving techniques
Distributed decision making and voting protocols
Cryptography for distributed systems
Decentralized finance (DeFi) security
Cross-chain transaction security
Bridging protocols and interoperability vulnerabilities
Smart contract exploitation and post-mortems
Accountability and forensics in distributed Systems
Detecting blockchain anomalies using machine learning
Blockchain data availability, security, and integrity
Layer-2 solutions and potential vulnerabilities
Blockchain scalability and security trade-offs
Quantum-computing threats to blockchain
Blockchain use in securing IoT
Security of network protocols
Submissions should be at most 6 pages excluding references, and use the double-column ACM proceedings format (acmart) template here, with the [sigconf, anonymous] options.
Please submit your manuscript via EasyChair at the submission link.
Reviewing will be double-blind. Author names and affiliations should not appear in the paper, and authors should make a reasonable effort not to reveal their identities or institutional affiliation.
Authors and Program Committee members are required to indicate any conflict of interest. Advisors and those that they are advising, as well as authors and PC members with an institutional relationship are considered to share a conflict of interest. Professional collaborations within the past 2 years or close personal relationships also constitute a conflict of interest.
You may contact the PC chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org
The accepted workshop papers and slides will be published on the ACSAC website.
