The 3rd International Workshop on Application Intelligence and Blockchain Security (AIBlock)

In Conjunction With ACNS 2021, Kamakura, Japan

We are closely monitoring current COVID-19 situation, and online presentation is under consideration.

Call For Papers:

As applications are one of the most critical assets, application security aims to take proper actions to improve the security of an application by identifying and fixing application vulnerabilities. Application intelligence plays an important role in designing an appropriate security mechanism; thus application intelligence security gains increasing attention. With the adoption of blockchain technology, how to benefit security by combining blockchains with application intelligence become an emerging research topic.

This workshop attempts to provide a platform for professionals from academia and industry to discuss challenges and potential solutions in this direction. We seek submissions describing either theoretical or practical solutions in relation to application intelligence security and blockchain security. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Authentication
- Blockchain Platforms
- Blockchain-based Applications
- Cryptocurrency Analysis
- Data and System Integrity
- Data Protection
- Database Security
- Decentralized Application Development
- Formal Method
- Intrusion Detection
- Smart Contracts
- Trust and Privacy of Applications
- Vulnerability Analysis

Important Dates:

- Workshop paper submission deadline: Mar 27, 2021 12 April (AoE)
- Workshop paper notification: 1 May, 2021
- Camera-ready papers for post-proceedings: extended to 18 May, 2021
- Workshop dates: 21 -24 June, 2021 (in parallel with the main conference)

Submission Guidelines:

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other venue with formally published proceedings. Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of other conferences for that purpose. Submissions must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgement or obvious references.

Each submission must begin with a title, short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. All submissions must follow the original LNCS format (see http://www.springeronline.com/lncs) with a page limit of 18 pages (incl. references) for the main part (reviewers are not required to read beyond this limit) and 30 pages in total. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference and must make a full version of their paper available online. There will be a best paper award.

The accepted papers will have post-proceedings published by Springer.
To make a submission via EasyChair System.

All qualified papers will be invited to submit an extended version to several special issues.

- Sensors (IF=3.275), SI on Security, Trust and Privacy in New Computing Environments
- Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (IF=1.819), SI on Blockchain in Wireless Communications and Computing: Security Threats and Applications
- Annals of Telecommunications (IF=1.552), SI on Security and Privacy for Cross-Blockchains
