Submission Site

BChain 20 Submission Site:

Please note that we will use the same submission site for the four conferences. Specifically, each track will be set up for each individual conference.

Submission Guidelines:

Papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF. The submissions will be judged based on the merit of the ideas rather than the length. For a paper, the page limit is 8 pages in standard two-column IEEE conference format or 12 pages in LNCS format, not including references. For a valid submission, the page size should exceed 4 pages in standard two-column IEEE conference format or 6 pages in LNCS format, not including references. After the acceptance decisions are made, the presentation mode of each paper is determined based on the recommendations as poster, spotlight, or oral. All accepted papers, regardless of presentation mode, appear in the proceedings as full-length papers. The proceeding of 2020 BenchCouncil International Federated Intelligent Computing and Block Chain Conferences will be published by Springer LNCS (Indexed by EI). For the papers which win the BenchCouncil Award for Excellence for Reproduceable Research (each paper $100 prize, maximally up to 15 papers for BChain 20), an extended version must be submitted to a BenchCouncil Transaction.

At least one author must pre-register for the symposium, and at least one author must attend the symposium to present the paper. Papers for which no author is pre-registered will be pulled from the proceedings.

  • The submission must be formatted for black-and-white printers. Please make sure your figures are readable when printed in black-and-white.
