Trends in Distributed Ledger Technologies

Open submissions

Chair: Massimo BARTOLETTI, Roberto ZUNINO

Short description:

Trends in DLT is an event organised by the CINI working group on Blockchain. The event aims at bringing together researchers interested in Distributed Ledger Technologies, both from a foundational and from an applicative viewpoint, to exchange ideas and discuss recent trends and open problems. To this aim, the workshop will feature talks on hot topics in DLT, followed by open sessions for discussion. As such, we encourage interested researchers to submit a talk proposal (~2 pages). The talk may present original ideas, work-in-progress, recently published research, or systematization of knowledge. The workshop has no formal proceedings. 

We encourage submissions that seek to elucidate or make progress towards solving the new and challenging problems that emerge in DLTs. The event fosters the participation of young researchers. In particular, we encourage submissions from PhD students, alone or together with other researchers.
