2023 International Conference on Blockchain and Trustworthy Systems

(BlockSys'2023)

Aug 8-10, 2023
Haikou, 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:

  • Blockchain

       – Theories  and  algorithms  for  blockchain

       – Smart  contracts  for  blockchain

       – Security,  privacy  and  trust  for  blockchain
