Blockchain is the key enabling technology for cryptocurrency. It was introduced as part of the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, which was established during the great recession. Blockchain is often referred to as a distributed and secure database. In fact, blockchain is much more than such a database, it consists of a mechanism that ensures distributed consensus among independent participants operating in an untrusted network. As such, blockchain has now been used in areas far beyond the financial sector. In addition to the applications of blockchain, there are also intense research on the foundation of the blockchain technology itself, such as different ways to accomplish proof of work, security of blockchain, and scalability of blockchain. In this conference, we invite submissions of high quality papers describing fully developed results or on-going foundational and applied work on the following topics. Suggested contribution topics include (but are not limited to) empirical and theoretical studies of:

Blockchain for Agriculture

·         Getting food from the ground to the table is a multi-phase, complex process riddled with risks that make both consumers and entities vulnerable. Blockchain provides an effective way to track and trace the food supply chain from the seed to the final product, offer more revenue opportunities, and inform and better protect the consumer.
