2019 International Conference on Blockchain and Trustworthy Systems
Dec. 7-8, 2019, Guangzhou, China

Blockchain has become a hot research area in academia and industry. The
blockchain technology is transforming industries by enabling anonymous and
trustful transactions in decentralized and trustless environments. As a
result, blockchain technology and other technologies for developing
trustworthy systems can be used to reduce system risks, mitigate financial
fraud and cut down operational cost.

Blockchain and trustworthy systems can be applied to many fields, such as
financial services, social management and supply chain management. This
conference provides scientists and engineers from both industry and
academia a platform to present their ongoing work, relate their research
outcomes and experiences, and discuss the best and most efficient
techniques for the development of blockchain and trustworthy systems.
Topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:
- Theories and algorithms for Blockchain
- Platform development for Blockchain
- Smart contracts for Blockchain
- Blockchain-based applications
