Call for Papers

The rapidly growing platform economy has begun to cause various problems such as data monopoly and closure, and the protocol economy based on blockchain technology has begun to attract attention as a next-generation economic model that can overcome these problems. Blockchain is a technology that discloses all transactions, policies, and expressions of opinion to all participants and stakeholders, but cannot be tampered with or hacked, so it not only brings about a super-reliable economic revolution, but also dramatically increases reliability. Nevertheless, there is no consensus on plans or best practices specifying how to use blockchain and its underlying or extension technologies in a tightly coupled manner. Combining blockchain technology with other technologies such as communication, decentralized network control, distributed database systems, authentication and privacy is still a particularly challenging task.
The BIC workshop is dedicated to promoting state-of-the-art blockchain technology investigations to explore the latest ideas, innovations, guidelines, theories, models, technologies, and applications of blockchain technology. The BIC workshop therefore invites original, high-quality submissions that build on these developments and findings and advance the state-of-the-art in the field. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

BIC solicits submission of original work not previously published or under review at another conference or journal.

All papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, and uploaded on EDAS. The direct link for paper submission is There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to accommodate the most recent research outcomes. The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, double-column pages using at least 10 pt (or higher) size fonts on A4 or letter pages in IEEE style format. The maximum number of pages is 6 for full papers and 3 for short papers. Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available on the conference web site (

Submitted papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation. All accepted papers will appear in the IEEE Xplore Digital library and will be indexed by Scopus and EI Compendex only if at least one of the authors registers at the full registration rate and attends to present the paper. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICUFN 2024 Conference Proceedings. Also extended versions of selected papers will be recommended for publication in SCI(E)-indexed international journals.
