Aim and description

This special session focuses on the latest developments in distributed, secure and scalable algorithms for blockchain technologies. We encourage submissions pertaining to innovative consensus mechanisms for blockchains, smart-contract use-cases and their applications, new architectures as well as new computational approaches to enhancing performance, scalability and reliability in both permissionless and permissioned blockchains. This special session also welcomes submissions on:

  • symbolic and formal verification algorithms with direct smart-contract applications to be used in blockchain technology
  • secure mechanisms and algorithms for enhancing the security of smart-contracts
  • algorithms for improved data security and privacy in blockchain-driven architectures
  • computational models for minting and verification of non-fungible tokens in blockchain-based ledgers
  • eco-friendly technologies with applicability in the blockchain industry and their use-cases
  • metaverse-driven developments, approaches and architectures based on, or derived from blockchain technology

List of topics:

  • Security-focused algorithms in blockchain technology
  • Models for enhancing computational workloads in blockchain technology
  • Distributed, secure and scalable algorithms and computational models with special applications to blockchain technology
  • Performance-driven algorithms for enhancing processing capabilities in blockchain technology
  • Innovative models of consensus mechanisms based on computational and/or secure algorithms for blockchain processing

Paper submission

We invite submissions containing original research results in the form of:
+ full research papers
+ short papers (work in progress)

Papers of up to 8 pages prepared according to the CPS template must be submitted electronically using the submission system that will be later accessible through EasyChair.
Research papers must contain original research results not submitted and not published elsewhere. Authors who want to present work in progress or discuss new aspects or a survey of their older research results at the workshop are welcome to submit an extended abstract (up to 4 pages). Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop topics.

Publication

Research papers that are accepted and presented at the workshop will be collected as proceedings published by IEEE’s Conference Publishing Service (CPS) and will be submitted for indexing in ISI Web of Science, DBLP, SCOPUS.
