June 25, 2018, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
The first Workshop on Byzantine Consensus and Resilient Blockchains will take place on June 25-28, 2018 in Luxembourg and is colocated with the IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks. This workshop aims at giving researchers a forum to exchange and discuss scientific ideas on open challenges regarding Byzantine consensus in general and specifically on resilient blockchains and distributed ledgers. We want to foster discussion and information exchange between these two (overlapping) communities. The workshop provides a forum for discussing novel trends in blockchain technology and the role of Byzantine consensus/BFT technology in the development of resilient blockchain technology. It aims at identifying novel threats and attacks to blockchain and BFT technologies, as well as at promoting discussions on methods and system support for improving the resilience and scalability. The workshop shall contribute to identifying new application areas for blockchain and BFT, and identifying open problems and future research challenges for BFT, including the impact of new hardware developments on BFT consensus and blockchain technology.
The Call for Papers will be available soon.
