About the workshop
In the last few years, software systems are moving towards blockchain technologies since they bring many advantages in different sectors. Thanks to smart contracts, data can be manipulated and accessed by users similar to databases with enhanced trust capabilities, databases.
This opportunity, combined with the blockchain potentialities, such as the integrity and the immutability of data, guarantees trusted evidence of the information stored and exchanged in the blockchain without relying on a central authority. This makes the blockchain the ideal technology for auditing, verification and sharing purposes, significantly changing how to design and implement next-generation distributed applications.
Recently, both academia and industry show an increasing interest in blockchain, looking for innovative blockchain-based technical solutions enabling data sharing in a trusted and decentralized way. The scientific results of the workshop have the ambition to change the way to organize, store, retrieve and share data. This is towards strengthening the decentralized access to data for any businesses, organizations, or participants in world-wide distributed networks. Thus, reflecting also in the development of business information systems in which decentralization and data sharing are key challenges.
From the technical perspective, the workshop can break the technological barriers to data management on blockchain technology, proposing novel approaches and solutions. Conceptual, technical, application-oriented and case-study contributions are welcomed within the themes of this workshop.
The Workshop on Blockchain for Trusted Data Sharing will be held in conjunction with BIR2023.
workshop has been partially supported by the SNF Project No. 196889 Domain-Specific Conceptual Modeling for Distributed Ledger Technologies.
