IEEE DAPPS 2024 solicits research papers describing novel and previously unpublished scientific contributions to the field of Web3 and decentralized computing and infrastructures. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.
Three different types of contributions can be submitted:
Regular/Full papers (10 pages, IEEE double-column format)
Short papers (6 pages, IEEE double-column format)
Posters (2 pages, IEEE double-column format)
Regular papers should describe novel and previously unpublished scientific contributions to the field of dApps and decentralized infrastructures. Each regular paper is limited to 10 pages, including tables, figures and references.
Short papers aim at presenting novel work in progress, novel applications, and novel industry perspectives in the field of dApps and decentralized infrastructures. Each short paper is limited to 6 pages, including tables, figures and references. Short papers will also be peer-reviewed, however, they will be evaluated with a focus on the potential for establishing new ideas and for sparking the interest of participants. Ph.D. students are also invited to submit ongoing work lacking complete results as short papers.
Poster authors are required to submit a 2-page extended abstract that covers the problem being tackled by the poster, the methodology/approach taken by the authors, and the main results attained up to this point. Poster papers must be submitted electronically at the submission site by the submission deadline (see the important dates). At least one author of each accepted poster must register for the conference and present the poster. Each accepted poster will be presented by its authors during the main conference.
All papers must be written in English. Manuscripts must include a title, an abstract, and a list of 4-6 keywords. All papers must be prepared in the IEEE double-column proceedings format. The paper submission templates are available on IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings.
IEEE DAPPS 2024 uses a Double-Blind review process. Authors are required to remove their names, affiliation(s) and other identifying information from the header of the manuscript. This also includes meta-data in the submitted document as well as acknowledgment sections. Authors are required to cite their previous work in a neutral manner, for example, avoid “in our previous work ” and instead use “as shown in ”.
Papers that do not meet these anonymization requirements may be desk-rejected without further review.
All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The name(s) of the author(s) will not be visible to the reviewers of a paper. The name(s) of the author(s) will be visible in the submission system to the General Chairs and the Program Committee Chairs. Authors should report any conflict of interest with the list of Program Committee members during submission of the manuscript, in which case the Program Committee Chairs will exclude the corresponding PC member(s) from reviewing the paper.
Authors must submit their manuscripts via the following link by March 8th, 2024, 23:59 AoE at the latest:
Authors who have submitted articles for publication by the IEEE may be interested in posting preprint versions of the same article. In order to find out more about the allowed forms of preprints and to understand what counts as a prior publication, please see IEEE’s Sharing and Posting Policies as well as Section 8.1.9 on “Electronic Information Dissemination” in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual.
All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (EI-Index) and included in the IEEE Digital Library. For publication, each accepted paper is required to be registered by one of its authors, and at least one author is required to attend and present the paper at the conference for the paper to be included in the final technical program and the IEEE Digital Library.
