BRAINS 2024 Call For Papers

Web3, 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 advances that could make the world of networks and services more secure while enabling new distributed business models

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Fundamentals of Blockchain and DLT

- Theoretical contributions to Blockchain, DLT and decentralized storage
- Distributed consensus and fault tolerance solutions, including domain-specific consensus
- Protocols and algorithms
- Distributed ledger analytics
- Trade-offs between decentralization, scalability, performance, and security
- Layer 2 solutions for scalability and privacy
- Blockchain interoperability and cross-chain mechanisms
- Storage solutions and data availability

Fundamentals of Decentralized Apps, Smart contracts, and chain code:
- Languages and tooling for dApp development
- Security, privacy, and forensics
- Transaction monitoring and analysis
- Collaboration between on-chain and off-chain code
- Token Economy, incentives, and protocols
- Distributed trust
- Oracles
- Blockchain as a service
- Blockchain-defined networking
- Web3, IPFS

Application and service cases of DLT and Smart contracts:
