IEEE INFOCOM 2019 - 2nd Workshop on on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains for Distributed Systems (CryBlock 2019)
http://www.cryblock.org

April 29, 2019 - Paris, France

*** Submission deadline: December 30, 2018 ***

-------------------------------------------------------
*Workshop Description*

The Internet is evolving into a new multi-factor paradigm based around smart systems, Internet of Things, new distributed data structures (e.g. blockchains) and digital assets (e.g. cryptocurrencies). In the next years, these technologies will converge and interact, fostering novel services, business models and applications. Indeed, the blockchain can provide an automated and secure transaction infrastructure for next generation Internet of Things (IoT), mobile and smart systems while the voluntary user participation to the mining of cryptocurrencies could permit the development of new distributed services (i.e. offering an alternative to the advertisement-based revenue system used by most of the “free services” that are currently available). This workshop aims at gathering together researchers and practitioners, coming from academia and industry, to focus on the new challenges posed by the novel technologies and applications that are based on the blockchains infrastructure. The goal is to promote discussion on theory, progresses, development, deployment and on the practical usage of cryptocurrencies, blockchain technologies, smart contracts, etc. We are interested both in innovative works in an unexplored and/or emerging topic in the broad area of distributed systems (e.g., mobile systems, devices and applications, vehicular and robotic systems, IoT), and in novel findings and/or new insights that build on existing works. The submission of both “full-fledged” technical papers and “visionary” position papers is strongly encouraged. Demos, tutorial and hands-on on submission are most welcome.

The specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

All kind of blockchain based distributed systems
Distributed (smart) systems relying on cryptocurrencies and smart contracts
Blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT)
Blockchain and mobile systems
Blockchain based mobile ad-hoc networks
Blockchain based intelligent vehicular coordination
Vehicular services based on cryptocurrencies and blockchain
Blockchain solutions for automotive
Use of blockchain to support mobile smart services and applications
Blockchain in crowdsourcing and crowdsensing
Blockchain in 5G
Blockchain in edge and cloud computing
Use of blockchain in Smart Cities
Blockchain schemes for decentralization
Blockchain-inspired or alternative byzantine fault tolerance
Performance optimization of blockchain and decentralized schemes
Use of blockchain in healthcare applications
Blockchains’ energy consumption issues
Security related issues in cryptocurrencies and blockchain
Simulation of blockchains
Use of blockchain in distributed simulation
Use of cryptocurrencies in public volunteer computing
Cryptocurrencies and blockchain usage in online gaming architectures and digital virtual environments
Multi-Agent Systems for modelling the usage of cryptocurrencies
Decentralized (mobile) processing, computing, and storage infrastructure
Testing mechanisms to increase interoperability, robustness, stability, and confidence in blockchain (mobile) systems

*Paper Submission and Publication*

You can submit your paper through the submission link available on the workshop website http://www.cryblock.org
At least one of the authors of every accepted paper must register and present the paper at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the combined INFOCOM 2019 Workshop proceedings and will be submitted to IEEE Xplore. Extended versions of workshop selected papers will be considered for possible publication to some international journal (TBA).

*Workshop deadlines*

- Submission Deadline: 30 December 2018
- Acceptance Notification: 22 February 2019
- Camera Ready Due: 10 March 2019

*Workshop co-Chairs*

Stefano Ferretti, University of Bologna, Italy (s.ferretti@unibo.it)
