Call for Papers
13th IEEE International Conference on Advanced and Trusted Computing ATC'2016
Track on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain based Systems

July 18-21, 2016, Toulouse, France

Aims and Scope of the track:

Since the appearance of bitcoin in 2009, a plethora of new cryptocurrencies and other
blockchain based systems have been deployed with different success rates. While some of them
are slightly different copies of Bitcoin, other ones propose interesting improvements or new
usages of the underlying blockchain technology. However, the novelty of such technologies is
often tied with rapid developments and proof-of-concept software, and few rigorous scientific
analysis of the proposed systems can be found. To revert such intertia, this track aims to provide
a forum for researchers in this area to carefully analyze current systems or propose new ones in
order to create a scientific background for a solid development of new cryptocurrencies and
blockchain technology systems.

The main topics include (but are not limited to):
• Anonymity and privacy in cryptocurrencies
• Cryptocurrency based trust systems
• Security analysis of existing cryptocurrencies
• Formal threat models in cryptocurrency systems
• Improvement proposals for existing cryptocurrencies
• P2P network cryptocurrencies analysis
• Private transactions in blockchain based systems
• Problem based mining for cryptocurrencies, like PrimeCoin
• Mining mechanisms: proof-of-work, proof of stake, proof of burn, ...
• New usages of the blockchain technology
• Scalability solutions for blockchain systems
• Smart contracts
• Blockchain-based Business Models
