Special Session on Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology

Blockchain has a great potential to create new foundations for our socio-economic systems by efficiently establishing trust among people and machines, reducing cost, and increasing utilization of resources.

Its secure design for supporting a distributed computing system with high fault tolerance is attracting wide attention all over the world. On one hand, blockchain will play an important role for secure decentralization in such emerging fields as Internet of Things, Cyber Physical Systems, edge computing, social networking, crowdsourcing and next generation wireless communications, and even more other fields. The emergence of blockchain technology will significantly change the way of digital and networking systems’ operation and management. On the other hand, the application of blockchain will exhibit a variety of complicated problems and new requirements, which brings more open issues and challenges for research communities. Its advance should be further evolved in terms of scalability, security, privacy, efficiency, flexibility, availability, real decentralization and high dependability.

The aim of this special session is to colligate and disseminate state-of-the-art research contributions, novel techniques, investigate new applications, introduce advanced methodologies that address various aspects in blockchain and distributed ledger technology.
