Call for Track Papers: Distributed Ledger Technologies/ Blockchain

This track forms part of the annual IDEAS conference: a top
international forum for data engineering researchers, practitioners,
developers, and application users to explore revolutionary ideas and
results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences.


Distributed Ledger is an emerging technology that provides a way of
storing and managing information in a public, immutable and
distributed way. This technology allowed for the creation of
decentralized cryptocurrencies (such as Bitcoin) and the proliferation
of software applications for e-government, e-voting, financial
services, identity management, supply chains, sensor networks, cloud
computing, Internet of Things, etc, also relying on the power of smart
contracts. Strong reliability and security levels have been reached by
extending the existing cryptographic schemes in blockchain, obtaining
secure and powerful software systems, which could work in a computer
network over which even the trust is distributed. However, such
applications are asked to cope with sensitive information, where the
sharing of such data could potentially violate individual
privacy. Moreover, several security issues are still open, especially
when smart-contract technology is enabled. The goal of this track is
to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, business leaders
and policy makers, for the discussion and the sharing of new ideas and
solutions, aiming at creating a scientific background for a solid
development of innovative applications using distributed ledger
technology and, especially, blockchains.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following.

Exploiting the distributed ledger technology. Innovative applications
using blockchain. Distributed ledgers in IoT. Handling information
uncertainty in smart contracts. Trust, reputation and distributed
consensus. Privacy management in blockchain. Formal verification and
validation of smart contracts. Formal methods in blockchain. Legal and
economic aspects of blockchain.
