The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
As a promising technique to achieve decentralized consensus, blockchain has been successfully applied into digital currency – bitcoin for serving as a public ledger for transactions. Its secure design for supporting a distributed computing system with high Byzantine fault tolerance is attracting wide attention all over the world. Blockchain has a great potential for event recording, identity management, fault provenance, behaviour tracking, and so on, especially in a distributed system without a trusted authority or central server. 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. On the other hand, its advance should be further evolved in terms of scalability, privacy, efficiency, flexibility and high dependability.
The 2018 IEEE International Conference on Blockchain (Blockchain-2018) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present latest advances and innovations in key theories, infrastructure, schemes, and significant applications for the blockchain, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future.
