IEEE S&B 2019 - IEEE SECURITY & PRIVACY ON THE BLOCKCHAIN (IEEE S&B)
Topics/Call fo Papers
Cryptocurrencies have emerged as a promising instrument for financial transaction services that provide transparency and integrity in a decentralized fashion. Their clever combination of blockchains with new incentive mechanisms facilitate publicly verifiable and peer-to-peer transactions without a trusted central party. As a result, they have caught the attention of academic researchers, mainstream media, regulators, entrepreneurs and traditional financial institutions. As a subject for academic research, the global and self-enforcing nature of blockchains raises interesting questions and challenges across several disciplines including computer science, law, economic and human-computer interaction. Our workshop focuses on a wide-range of topics ranging from the scalability of cryptocurrencies, achieving and evaluating financial privacy in public blockchains, permissioning access to blockchains to satisfy regulatory requirements, aligning honest behaviour in blockchain ecosystems and smart contracts through the application of game theory and mechanism design, and the critical analysis of various applications of blockchain to other domains.
