BC4IS24 - Blockchain for
Information Systems

3rd of June 2024, Limassol, Cyprus
Hosted by the 36th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering
Co-Organized and Co-Chaired with the International Workshop on Blockchain for Trusted Data Sharing

Workshop Presentation

Blockchain technology supports the execution and storage of transactions in a decentralized, transparent and immutable fashion. It is part of a broader set of technologies referred to as Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs). Cryptocurrencies represented the first major application of blockchain. Then, the development of smart contracts has provided the opportunity to manage other types of assets and to implement business logic running on blockchain platforms. Finally, the era of broader applications of blockchain technology beyond currencies, finance and markets has emerged. This evolution was coined Blockchain 1.0, Blockchain 2.0 and Blockchain 3.0 respectively.

The opportunities related to the evolution of blockchain technology, along with their challenges have generated a strong and continuously growing interest from industry and academia in the engineering of blockchain-based information systems, and more particularly, in the engineering of blockchain-based solutions for Business Process Management (BPM). Beside classical engineering questions, new and specific challenges arise for blockchain-based solutions for organizations and for BPM, to which conceptual modeling, databases, ontology engineering and information systems communities could provide relevant answers. In particular, the workshop focuses on the definition of requirements for, development, use, and evolution of blockchain-based solutions.

The papers have to be submitted via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=caise2024), choosing the present workshop as the track to which you submit the paper.

The different types of papers that can be accepted as well as the standards to follow for the format are the same as the ones of the main track of the conference. All the details are available on the conference website. As a further precision, among the different categories of papers that can be accepted, we can accept full papers (strictly limited to 12 pages, everything included), along with some short papers (strictly limited to 6 pages, everything included). Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings template. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

The proceedings of the conference workshops will be published as one volume in the Springer LNBIP series. Short papers will be placed in a designated section.
