International Workshop on
Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Technology - CBT'18

In conjunction with ESORICS 2018

http://www.cbtworkshop.org/

September 6-7, 2018
Barcelona, Catalonia
*********************************************************************

Since the appearance of Bitcoin in 2009, a plethora of new
cryptocurrencies and other blockchain based systems have been deployed
with different success. 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 rigorous scientific analyses of the
proposed systems are often skipped.

This workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers in this area to
carefully analyze current systems and propose new ones in order to
create a scientific background for a solid development of new
cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology systems.


IMPORTANT DATES
Submission Deadline: June 18, 2018
Author Notification: July 10, 2018
Camera Ready: July 25, 2018

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.
* Consensus mechanisms: proof-of-work, proof of stake,
proof of burn, proof-of-useful-work.
* New usages of the blockchain technology.
* Scalability solutions for blockchain systems.
* Smart contracts.
