Special Sub-Topic: Blockchain & Semantics

Distributed ledger technologies (widely known under the headline “blockchain”) have been at the center of attention during the last half a decade with the popular example of the crypto currency Bitcoin, accompanied with a large amount of ideas for application beyond the realm of cryptographic currencies. As distributed ledger technologies are graduating from being just hype into a maturing technology, they are getting combined with other information technologies in order to benefit from the advantages of both, to hedge each others’ disadvantages, or to integrate distributed ledger technologies into existing systems and architectures. In this spirit, we want to provide a forum to explore the intersection of distributed ledger and semantic web technologies.

Therefore, this track invites high quality submissions in the intersection of semantic web and distributed ledger technologies. We invite both research papers describing novel approaches and insights as well as case studies and industry submissions.

Topics of Interest include but are not limited to:

Author Guidelines and Submission for paper submissions

Review and Evaluation Criteria for paper submissions

Each submission will be reviewed by several PC members. The reviewing process is single-blind. Papers submitted to this track will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

We are looking forward to your contribution!
