Special Session on Distributed Ledger Technology and IoT

Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), of which blockchain is an instance, is increasingly considered a disruptive technology in various domains. The key contribution of DLTs is to provide an immutable yet accessible record of transactions and data to nodes that do not trust each other with no need for a central authority to manage the network. Integrating IoT systems with DLT can bring many advantages. For instance, improve efficiency, reduce costs, and mitigate security and privacy threads because of DLTs ability to establish a trusted data sharing environment. Despite the considerable developments made in applying DLT to IoT in recent years, several challenges remain to be addressed, including the poor scalability, the scarcity of available implementation on embedded devices, and the impact of integration on network performance. The goal of this Special Section is to present and discuss recent advances in DLT and IoT and to offer to both academic and industry researchers the opportunity to share their work on the design, implementation, and evaluation of DLT-based IoT systems.

The Special Session on Distributed Ledger Technology and IoT is included in the International Symposium on the Internet of Things organized in the frame of the 7th International Conference on Smart and Sustainable Technologies (SpliTech 2022), technically co-sponsored by the IEEE CommunicationSociety (ComSoc), will be held in Bol and Split, Croatia, July 5-8, 2022. Bol and Split, Croatia (hybrid) 5-8, July 2022.

Accepted, and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Authors of selected best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their manuscripts for publication in a special issue of some international and indexed journals.
