================================== iSCI 2019 ====================================

The 7th International Conference on Smart City and Informatization (iSCI 2019)
November 12-15, 2019, Guangzhou, China

http://isci-conf.org/iSCI2019/

======================================================================

The 2nd International Workshop on Blockchain and its Applications (Blockchain 2019) will provide a forum for both academia and industry professionals to present their latest research findings in different aspects of Blockchain and its Applications. For authors who may not have caught up with submitting regular papers, we also welcome Short Papers reporting on the latest research, design and implementation of applications and systems in the areas of Blockchain and its Applications. Submissions from both industry and academia are strongly encouraged.

The Short Papers session will provide a forum to discuss novel ideas and emerging results, presenting innovative applications and tools, and bring about novel research questions, approaches, and directions.

Submission Guidelines

Short Papers may be 8-10 pages in length, or at most 4 additional pages with the pages overlength charge, including figures, tables, and references. If accepted, Short Papers will be considered for possible publication as Regular Papers in author notifications around August 25, 2019. In other words, we will not differentiate Regular Papers and Short Papers in the conference proceedings.

The submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by members of the Blockchain 2019 Technical Program Committee. All selected papers will be orally presented in a special conference session. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the conference to present the work. The accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Springer LNCS (EI Indexed), and will be included in the Digital Library in Springer.

Authors are requested to submit original, unpublished manuscripts in standard Springer LNCS proceedings format (https://www.springer.com/cn/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines) through the conference website (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=blockchain20190) with PDF format. Submitted papers must include the contact information of all the authors. Please make sure you use the latest version of the templates to prepare your submissions. Due to the short interval between the notification of acceptance and the camera-ready deadline, we strongly encourage authors to follow the camera-ready formatting guidelines as close as possible.

PAPER SUBMISSION
All papers need to be submitted electronically through the conference website (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=blockchain20190) with PDF format. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Short Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not exceed 10 pages in Springer LNCS format (or up to 14 pages with the pages over length charge), including tables, figures, references and appendices. Papers will be selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation assessed by at least three reviewers. Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work. Blockchain 2019 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the digital library and indexing services), if the paper is not presented at the conference. All accepted papers will be published by Springer LNCS (EI Indexed). One outstanding paper will be selected to receive the Best Paper Award.

PAPER PUBLICATION
All accepted papers will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (indexed by EI Compendex). Blockchain 2019 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the digital library and indexing services), if the paper is not presented at the conference.
