Call For Papers

This paper-oriented workshop scientifically addresses recent research efforts in the field of blockchain technology use for cross-organizational collaboration. The workshop focuses on the application of information and communication technology in order to enable organizational and governmental service provisions. The resulting technology-mediated processes are changing the delivery of private and public services as well as the broader interactions between citizens, governments and organizations. More and more countries are considering e-governance solutions as a tool to improve efficiency and transparency of their services. However, there exists a gap of understanding the support of trust and reputation via blockchain solutions that allow for immutable event traceability. The workshop aims for exploring systematic approaches for developing and interrelating blockchain-technology supported services as well as increasing issues concerning blockchain-tech enabled security and privacy of personal data use. In addition, technological advances in the field of big data analysis, blockchains for distributed application deployment, smart contracts, the Internet-of-Things, agent technologies, etc., offer new research directions in the blockchain-technology space for further improvements of existing solutions.

The goal of this workshop is to promote, establish and speed up blockchain-technology related research, and identify future research questions. Contributions should focus on clearly stated research questions covering the topics mentioned below.

The topics of interest for blockchain-technology research papers include, but are not limited to:

● Security and Privacy Management of e-Governance Systems
● (Smart) Government
● E-Voting
● Governmental Decision-making
● E-Business
● E-Tax
● E-Health
● Identity and Identification Systems
● Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO)
● Self-Aware Contracts as well as AI and Smart Contracts
● Interoperability
● Self-organizing and Evolutionary e-governance
● Collaboration Models
● Legal Aspects of blockchain technology
● Benchmarks and Evaluation Strategies for blockchain e-governance Systems
● Economics of blockchain e-governance
● Case Studies for blockchain-based distributed applications deployment
● Open and Big Data with blockchain technology

Format of the Workshop:

BIOC’19 is intended to be a full-day workshop divided into three sessions in which around 6-8 full and 2 short scientific papers will be presented. Full papers will have a time slot reserved of 30 minutes (20 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for questions and discussions), and short papers will have a time slot of 15 minutes (10 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussions). In addition, we plan to have a keynote speech held by an acknowledged expert in the field of blockchain technology in inter-organizational collaboration.
