The Symposium on Distributed Ledger Technology (SDLT 2017) will be held on 13th June 2017 at Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia. The Symposium will target a wide spectrum of the state-of-art and emerging topics pertaining to real world applications, security and privacy issues, and legal and regulatory issues in DLT. The SDLT 2017 program features a number of invited talks, technical sessions, panel discussion and keynote speech. Leaders involved in digital transformation and adoption of blockchain technology in industries and businesses, and researchers are encouraged to register and attend the symposium.

Aims and Scope
Distributed Ledger Technology (Blockchain) is an emerging technology, which provides a mechanism to record and manage information in a distributed fashion. It has the potential for the creation of crypto-currencies, smart contracts, distributed autonomous organisations (DAOs), new voting system over a distributed network etc. Useful properties like immutability (tamper evidence), trustless consensus, dis-intermediation provided by the cryptographic schemes have expanded the application domain of blockchain to financial services, real estate, stock exchange, identity management, supply chain, and Internet of Things. This symposium aims to provide a forum for researchers in these topic areas to carefully analyse any proposed systems, or application of DLT in new domains and to create a scientific background for a solid development of DLT based systems.
- The main topics include (but not limited to):
- Anonymity and privacy in DLT
- DLT based trust systems
- Security, reliability and scalability analysis
- Formal threat models in DLT systems
- Analysis of DLT platforms
- Protocol analysis of DLT based systems
- Consensus mechanisms: proof-of-work, proof of stake, proof of existence, etc.
- Real world applications: healthcare, identity management, etc.
- Standards and interoperability
- Smart contracts, blockchain as-a-service
- Blockchain-based Business Models
- Impact on legal and regulatory issues
Researchers and industry practitioners are invited to submit a one page extended abstract using the IEEE Conference Proceedings Manuscript style: two columns, single-spaced, 10pt fonts. The abstracts must be submitted as pdf via email to: email@example.com
