A blockchain is a distributed ledger that records transactions and is maintained by many nodes through a distributed cryptographic protocol with no central authority. Smart contracts on the blockchain make transactions traceable, transparent, and irreversible. Blockchain technology and smart contracts are expected to play an important role in emerging areas such as the Internet of things (IoT), cyber-physical systems (CPS), social networking, crowdsourcing, and next-generation wireless communications. On the other hand, their advancement should be further developed in terms of scalability, privacy, efficiency, flexibility, and high dependability.
The IEEE International Workshop on Blockchain and Smart Contracts (IEEE BSC 2022) at QRS aims to provide a high-profile, cutting-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present the latest advances and innovations in key theories, infrastructure, schemes, and major applications of blockchain software, and to identify emerging research topics and define the future.
The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not permitted. Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission, panel proposals, and review process can be found at QRS submission.
Each submission can have a maximum of ten pages. It should include a title, the name and affiliation of each author, a 300-word abstract, and up to 6 keywords. Shorter version papers (up to six pages) are also allowed.
All papers must conform to the QRS conference proceedings format (PDF | Word DOCX | Latex) and Submission Guideline set in advance by QRS 2024. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay the full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop. Submissions must be in PDF format and uploaded to the conference submission site. Arrangements are being made to publish extended version of top-quality papers in selected SCI journals.Submission
