FPDAPP 2019 - Call for Papers
2nd International Workshop on Future Perspective of Decentralized

Held in conjunction with the 25th International European Conference on
Parallel and Distributed Computing

August 26 or 27, 2019, Gottingen, Germany

Blockchain technologies (BCTs) make agreement amongst untrusted parties
possible, without the need for certification authorities. Proposed
frameworks have been put forward in sector as diverse as finance,
health-care, notary, intellectual property management, identity,
provenance, international cooperation, social good, and security to cite
but a few. Smart contracts, i.e. self-enforcing agreements in terms of
executable software running on blockchains, have been developed in several
contexts. Such an under-definition computational model introduces
innovative aspects, such as the economics and trust of the decentralised
computation relying on the shared contribution of peers and their
decentralised consensus.

FPDAPP aims to rigorously explore and evaluate the potentiality of such
novel decentralised frameworks and applications. Of particular interest is
the evaluation and comparison of killer applications that are showing
evidence of how BTC can revolutionize their domains or developing new
application areas. Evaluation and comparisons are broadly understood, form
technical aspects regarding the novel decentralised computer to the
possible impact on society, business and the public sector.

FPDAPP is associated to Europar, a premier conference in the field of
distributed computing, focuses on matching theory with practice and
applications. Importantly, FPDAPP aims to foster the cross-fertilisation
between the blockchain and the distributed/parallel computing communities,
which can strongly contribute to each other development. In this regard,

TOPICS OF INTEREST includes (but are not limited by)

accepted papers will have to sign a Springer copyright form. One author of
each accepted paper is expected to register and present the paper at the

Submissions must be in PDF format and should not exceed 12 pages (including
references) in the Springer LNCS style. Complete LaTeX sources must be
provided for accepted papers.
