Track on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain based Systems

13th IEEE International Conference on Advanced and Trusted Computing
July 18-21, Toulouse, France


Important Dates:

* Submission: March 11, 2016
* Notification: May 6, 2016
* Camera ready: May 20, 2016


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 proofof- concept software, and few rigorous
scientific analysis of the proposed systems can be found. To revert
such inertia, 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


Paper Submission:

Submitted papers must be original and not submitted for publication
elsewhere. Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts following
the IEEE Conference Proceedings Manuscript style: two columns,
single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10pt fonts, and
numbering each page.

The papers are limited to 8 pages (full papers), or 4 pages (short
papers), following the IEEE CS format, and are to be submitted as PDF
via the ATC 2016 submission sites:

Accepted conference papers will be published by IEEE CPS (IEEE-DL and
EI indexed). At least one author of each accepted paper is required to
register and present their work at the conference; otherwise the paper
will not be included in the proceedings. Best Paper and Best Demo
Awards will be presented to high quality work.
