Special Issue on Blockchain and Decentralized Applications

简介

Blockchain has become increasingly popular in both academia and industry. Blockchain is a new technology leveraging a number of Computer Science concepts, such as distributed data storage, point-to-point transmission, consensus mechanisms, and encryption algorithms. Its characteristics, such as decentralization, openness, autonomy, tamperresistency and anonymity, play an important role in the development of the market economy. In addition, the advantages of blockchain could be further evolved in terms of security, privacy, efficiency, scalability, flexibility and reliability, and potential applications for this technology are growing exponentially.


Blockchain has been widely applied to the development of decentralized applications (DApps). DApps relies on blockchain and consensus mechanism to accomplish a given task. DApp does not depend on any centralized server, and has the potential to enhance reliability of the software and decrease the cost of central trusted authority. DApps have plenty of advantages in changing the process of user authentication, promoting security of transactions, transforming industry supply chains, reducing the cost of operation and maintenance, decreasing the cost of technology development, and improving the user’s experience.


This special issue seeks innovative and advanced research on blockchain and DApps and its applications from the perspective of both academic and industry. It will help in integrate blockchain and DApps research, exhibit a variety of challenging and relevant problems and new requirements, and bring more opportunities and challenges for research communities.

Paper Submission


This special issue seeks submission of papers that present novel and innovative ideas. All submissions including invited papers go under regular peer review process. We seek submission of papers that present new, original and innovative ideas for the "first" time in SPE. Submission of "extended versions" of already published works (e.g., conference papers) is not encouraged unless they contain a significant number of "new and original" ideas/contributions along with more than 50% brand "new" material. If you are submitting an extended version, you must submit a cover letter/document detailing (1) the "Summary of Differences" between the SPE paper and the earlier paper, (2) a clear list of "new and original" ideas/contributions in the SPE paper (identifying sections where they are proposed/presented), and (3) confirming the percentage of new material. Otherwise, the submission will be "desk" rejected without being reviewed. While submitting paper to this issue, please select “SPE-SI- Blockchain and Decentralized Applications” in the submission system.
