Call For Papers

The introduction of bitcoin protocol in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto has been a disruptive event that marked the beginning of the new era of decentralization in information systems worldwide. After a ten years period of incubation the more comprehensive version of technology is mature enough to become the fully-fledged architecture being the basis for numerous applications from broad range of industries. One of Its traits of being third-party independent make the blockchain platforms a first choice for innovative business models and startups. So far the focus on technologies around blockchain was mainly the domain of innovators, enthusiast and early-adopters. Although the developments in the field is closely observed by the academia there is relatively little research forums concerned purely with distributed ledger phenomenon.

The first International workshop on Blockchain and Smart Contract Technologies (BSCT), co-located with 21st International Conference on Business Information Systems (BIS 2018) being held in Berlin, Germany is planned to be such a forum. It will be the platform bringing together practitioners and researchers to create an open space for introducing insights and exchanging new ideas. The workshop aims at investigating challenges and opportunities in the field of blockchain technologies and its future developments. Additionally, it will pay a special attention to issues related to blockchain architectures and applications as well as innovative business models and use-cases based on distributed ledger environments.

The workshop is open to any research or position papers describing current work relating to blockchain and smart contracts technologies with respect to applications, analysis, simulation results, proof-of-concept or innovative solution approaches.
