IIoT 2018 - International Workshop on Blockchain for Industrial Internet of Things

Date2018-10-21 - 2018-10-23


VenueBellevue, WA, USA - United States USA - United States



Topics/Call fo Papers

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is reshaping various industrial sectors, such as manufacturing, logistics, transportation, healthcare, energy and utilities. IIoT consists of various smart objects distributed throughout the whole industrial system to collect massive ambient data, which can be used to identify performance bottlenecks, troubleshoot faults and detect malicious behaviours consequently enforcing effective control to the physical world. However, there are several challenges posed on IIoT before the formal adoption of IIoT across various industries. Among them, security and privacy preservation on IIoT data are the most crucial concerns. On the other hand, the blockchain technology is transforming industries by enabling anonymous and trustful transactions in decentralized and trustless environment. As a result, blockchains help to reduce system risks, mitigate financial fraud and cut down operational cost.
The convergence of IIoT and blockchains can potentially overcome the deficiencies of IIoT consequently resulting in the realization of IIoT in industrial sectors. Both industry practitioners and academic researchers aim at realizing general, scalable and deployable blockchain-based IIoT platforms in various application domains while there are a number of challenges like distributed consensus algorithms and data analytics with privacy-preservation in IIoT systems.
Topics of interest:
To fill the gap, this workshop solicits high quality and unpublished work on recent advances in Blockchains for IIoT. We solicit papers covering the following topics of interest, but not limited to:
Advanced technologies for blockchain-enabled IIoT:
New distributed consensus algorithms for blockchain-enabled IIoT
