This workshop aims to provide a venue for researchers from both academy and industry to present and discuss important topics on blockchain technology. The workshop’s goal is to present results on both theoretical and more applicative open challenges, as well as to provide a venue to showcase the current state of existing proposals.

All workshop papers are limited to no more than 6 pages in IEEE format aligned with the IEEE-Percom main conference guidelines.

All submissions will undergo a double-blind review process. As a result, authors must make a good-faith effort to anonymize their submissions.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to an accepted special issue of an international journal whose details will be disclosed shortly.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Blockchain Fundamentals
Distributed consensus Algorithms
Permissioned vs permissionless paradigms
Scalability issues
P2P communication protocols
Inter-ledger protocols
Smart contracts automatic verification
layer-2 payment protocols, lightning networks
