2019 International Conference on Blockchain and Trustworthy Systems

(BlockSys'2019)

Dec 7-8, 2019
Guangzhou, China

Blockchain has become a hot research area in academia and industry. The blockchain technology is transforming industries by enabling anonymous and trustful transactions in decentralized and trustless environments. As a result, blockchain technology and other technologies for developing trustworthy systems can be used to reduce system risks, mitigate financial fraud and cut down operational cost.
Blockchain and trustworthy systems can be applied to many fields, such as financial services, social management and supply chain management.
This conference provides scientists and engineers from both industry and academia a platform to present their ongoing work, relate their research outcomes and experiences, and discuss the best and most efficient techniques for the development of blockchain and trustworthy systems.
Topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:

  • Theories and algorithms for Blockchain
  • Platform development for Blockchain
  • Smart contracts for Blockchain
  • Security, privacy and trust for Blockchain
  • Blockchain and social management
  • Blockchain and big data
  • Blockchain and service computing
  • Blockchain and cloud computing
  • Blockchain and Internet of Things
  • Blockchain based applications
  • Scalability and fault tolerance mechanisms for trustworthy systems
  • Algorithms, architecture, framework, design patterns and techniques for trustworthy systems
  • Scalability and fault tolerance mechanisms for trustworthy systems
  • Security, privacy, safety, and riskmanagement for trustworthy systems
  • Metrics and measurement for trustworthy systems
  • Quality assurance, maintenance and reverse engineering for trustworthy systems
  • Verification, validation, testing, and analysis for trustworthy systems
