COVID-19: BlockTEE’22 is planned as a physical, in-person event, with certain support for remote presence, both for speakers and for other participants who are unable or unwilling to come. Depending on the pandemic situation, we may have to make a decision whether to cancel the physical component of the event or not.
Blockchains and Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) are popular emerging technologies, enabling new or existing use cases to be deployed under stronger security and trust models. Blockchains and TEEs have been combined in the past to enhance the performance, security and applicability for blockchains. In this workshop, we invite novel combinations of these two technologies. Some of the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
The first page must contain (1) title, (2) author names and affiliations, (3) contact author’s email, (4) abstract, and (5) indication of whether the paper is a full paper or a position paper as detailed below:
Contributions should be submitted electronically as PDF, using the Springer LNCS style to the conference submission website (https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=blocktee22). Each paper will undergo a thorough process of peer reviews by the Program Committee. Reviewing is single-blind: author name(s) should appear.
We will have an hybrid publication model. In the spirit of a workshop, the aim of this hybrid model is to facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences via presentations of preliminary research results and ongoing work, as well as presentations of research work to a focussed audience. Therefore, authors will be able to choose, after paper acceptance, if:
The author’s decision of publication mode is done after notification and hence has no bearing on the decision of whether to accept or reject a submission. Submission implies that at least one author will register and attend the conference if the paper is accepted. The registration fees for accepted papers is due regardless of the selected publication model.
