Call For Papers

FPDAPP 2018 - Call for Papers
International Workshop on Future Perspective
of Decentralized APPlications

Held in conjunction with the 24th International European
Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing

August 27-28, 2018, Turin, Italy


Blockchain technologies (BCTs) make agreement amongst untrusted parties possible, without the need for certification authorities. Proposed frameworks have been put forward in sector as diverse as finance, health-care, notary, intellectual property management, identity, provenance, international cooperation, social good, and security to cite but a few. Smart contracts, i.e. self-enforcing agreements in terms of executable software running on blockchains, have been developed in several contexts. Such an under-definition computational model introduces innovative aspects, such as the economics and trust of the decentralised computation relying on the shared contribution of peers and their decentralised consensus.

FPDAPP aims to rigorously explore and evaluate the potentiality of such novel decentralised frameworks and applications. Of particular interest is the evaluation and comparison of killer applications that are showing evidence of how BTC can revolutionize their domains or developing new application areas. Evaluation and comparisons are broadly understood, form technical aspects regarding the novel decentralised computer to the possible impact on society, business and the public sector.

FPDAPP is associated to Europar, a premier conference in the field of distributed computing, focuses on matching theory with practice and applications. Importantly, FPDAPP aims to foster the cross-fertilisation between the blockchain and the distributed/parallel computing communities, which can strongly contribute to each other development. In this regard, Europar will host an invited talk by Silvio Micali (TA) on Algorand, one of the most innovative frameworks currently being proposed in BCTs. Europar will take place in Torino, a city that is actively promoting the introduction of novel technologies and BCTs in the public sector and for social goods.
