Special issues associated with the conference are being organized. 
Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to those 

Social good has a big impact on society. Indeed, the term “social good” 
is referred something which benefits the general public, and at the same 
time, it is something that reflects and respects their wishes, being 
‘from’ the people. The social good can be envisioned as global citizens 
uniting to unlock the potential of individuals through collaboration to 
create a positive societal impact. A lot of interest has been produced 
in the last years, and new proposals and technologies have been 
considered. Among them, Blockchain, distributed ledger technologies, and 
decentralized technologies in general, such as IPFS, have been 
considered in order to improve all the aspects of the social good. 
Blockchain and decentralized technologies have been a big impact on the 
world. In particular, the Blockchain technology has been applied to 
several fields, such as e-health, IoT, media, etc. The big question 
around the definition of this track is: “how the blockchain gives a big 
impact on the social good? And how decentralization can improve the ICT 
industries?”. The track manages the possible application of 
decentralized technologies in research fields included in the global 
scope of the social good.
while the revolutionary potential of blockchains has been largely tested 
(in the financial domain in particular), its possible applications in 
social domains and to address sustainability challenges have been 
explored far less.
The aim of this special track is to explore and debate the main concepts 
and implications of blockchain technology, how it can be a driver of 
innovation, and its positive effects on our societies, industry, legal 
systems, and economic/financial system. Also, the risks and 
uncertainties that blockchain arrows are welcome to be debated in this 
This special track will provide both academic and industry researchers 
with a forum to discuss the impact, future, and limitations of 
blockchain technology regarding its effect across specific industries, 
economic, finance, law, etc.
