2018-09-10 Paper "Geofences on the Blockchain: Enabling Decentralized Location-based Services" accepted

Our paper "Geofences on the Blockchain: Enabling Decentralized Location-based Services" has been accepted for the BlockSEA 2018, The 1st Workshop on Blockchain and Sharing Economy Applications, co-located with The 18th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM 2018) taking place in Singapore, November 17, 2018.

In the past decade, tech giants—such as Google, Facebook, Uber, or Airbnb—have one thing in common: they provide centralized platforms for users to exchange commodities and generate value. Today we are fast moving toward a new world of decentralized and secure organizations thanks to the emergence of blockchain and distributed ledgers technology. With blockchain, large numbers of individuals can coordinate and interact directly with one another, and to govern themselves without the help of a third party. A fairly large number of sharing economy applications have already been deployed on a blockchain, for instance distributed social networks that operate like Facebook, or upcoming Uber and Airbnb services operating without Uber and Airbnb (companies).

This workshop aims to bring together interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners, coming from academia and industry, to focus on the new challenges posed by the novel technologies and applications that are based on the blockchain and distributed ledgers. The goal is to promote discussion on design, data collection & analysis, as well as security and privacy of blockchain/smart-contract-based applications. Especially, we are interested in decentralized sharing economy applications including, but not limited to, decentralized social networks, crowdsourcing and crowdsensing, and sharing of computing power, network resources, and other commodities.
