General Information:

IEEE Blockchain-2018 invites proposals for Workshops (WS) and Special Sessions (SS) to be held in conjunction with the conference. The aim is to provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to present and discuss their work, as well as to offer a forum for interaction among a broader community of researchers related to the main topics of Blockchain-2018. The papers will be required to meet the same standards as the main conference papers and will be published in the conference proceedings, available on IEEE Xplore. Normally, an SS should contain 4 or more papers, and a WS should contain 2 or more sessions (8 or more papers). The organizers of the SS/WS are encouraged to make a plan for post conference special issues in some high-quality international journals.
