1st Workshop on Scalable and Resilient Infrastructures for Distributed Ledgers (SERIAL 2017)
December 11th-15th, 2017
With the rise of digital currencies and distributed ledger infrastructures, a multitude of novel application scenarios are currently discussed and evaluated. In essence, these technologies will crosscut and change a large variety of digital interactions. At the same time, the underlying infrastructures are rapidly developed and deployed. Thereby, their resilience and scalability is key for success.
The 1st Workshop for Scalable Resilient Infrastructures targets to investigate system support to foster resilience and scalability of decentralized infrastructures such as distributed ledger ecosystems but targets resilience support for more traditional Internet-based services.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
The goal of the workshop is to foster collaboration and discussion among researchers and practitioners in this field. The workshop will be one full day. The program should primarily include presentations by authors of accepted papers (the workshop will have proceedings in the ACM digital library). The other elements will be 1-3 invited presentations and a panel ending the day with an open discussion with the workshop audience.
SERIAL welcomes submissions in two formats:
All submissions should be in PDF and must follow the ACM SIGPLAN format (http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template).
Reviewing is single-blind. This means that the names and affiliations of the authors must appear in the submitted papers. Each paper will receive at least three reviews from members of the program committee. Submissions that do not respect the formatting requirement may be rejected without review.
