WS2: Workshop on Food Supply Chain using Blockchain technologies


SCOPE
Blockchain and Distributed systems have always presented complex challenges, and technology trends are, in many ways making the software designer’s job more difficult. In particular, today’s systems must successfully handle: – Privacy: Regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for Europe and the California Consumers Privacy Act (CCPA) require much stronger security for personal data, and system owners must delete all personal data based on a user’s request or completion of a transaction. – Access control complexity: Modern access control often uses rules that depend on data from sources outside the organization, requiring high-performance networks with data integrity guarantees. – “Internet of Things" and ubiquitous sensor nodes: Data sources can include building sensors, smart watches, medical sensors, and many other sensor types. In short, systems must handle more data from disparate sources and, at the same time, be responsive to new and emerging privacy and data retention requirements. Recent developments in distributed ledger technology (DLT) have been applied to some of these challenges with limited success. A key problem is the immutability property of blockchain (the most prominent form of DLT), which conflicts with the requirement to allow the deletion of user data. There are many critical use cases in the health and food supply sectors. The Cities2030 project will look at the food supply chain with end-to-end tracking and tracing from the farm to the fork using Blockchain with compliance with GDPR. The workshop seeks innovative proposals to cover these industries and govern to foster discussions and collaboration in this new and emerging field.

WS3: Workshop on Business Model Innovation and Value Networks in IoT industrial applications (ValueIoT)


SCOPE
As part of GIoTS 2023, the 4th edition of the special session on " Business Model Innovation and Value Networks in IoT" (ValueIoT) aims to describe the complex interplay of IoT technology invention and business model innovation (BMI) associated with creation of complex multi-stakeholder value networks.

The interdisciplinary studies of interest include but are not limited to:
1) Case studies of Value Networks and Business Models in IoT for Industrial Applications: Position and technical papers describing the usage of IoT in terms of Value Networks and Business Models. This also includes the driving stakeholders (e.g., developers, industry, end-users, standardization organs) influenced by the targeted market and audience, business development, education, legislation, ethics, development cycles, and theory.
2) Evaluation of IoT application and innovation in terms of business potential multi-vendor systems: With a focus on the IoT technology in the value networks and business models both in the innovation and the development stages and on business models in the market. Evaluation of IoT applications and services in terms of trust and security towards trusted and sustainable deployments is particularly interesting.
3) Economic, social, and ecological aspects for IoT sustainability: With focus on IoT platforms and frameworks that improve quality and resource efficiency. Studying interact with the environment has consequences with a high impact on existing solutions, technologies, and businesses. Position papers on multi-stakeholder platforms, where centralization is challenged, and models such as cooperative networks and platforms are encouraged.

WS4: Workshop on Blockchain and IoT


SCOPE
Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Blockchain represent two great practical innovations of this century. IoT brings internet connectivity to physical objects, such as lightbulbs, home appliances, and even entire buildings and cities. These objects, often called smart objects, acquire near real-time data collection and processing capabilities, allowing for in-depth data analytics. While modern internet protocols allow for IoT devices to communicate seamlessly, it’s only with the advent of blockchain technologies that scalable, peer-to-peer exchange of value became practicable on these devices: using the blockchain; they can autonomously exchange value, such as payments for data or services, in a peer-to-peer fashion, opening the way to innovative use-cases for IoT networks.

But blockchain is not only a technology for peer-to-peer payments. Blockchains can now accommodate large transaction volumes, opening up to even more revolutionary use cases. This engineering advancement nowadays enables solutions for data integrity that can help build trust in IoT networks, creating an Internet of Identities where devices can be uniquely identified. For IoT networks, this means that information collected by these devices can have integrity: we can be sure of the collection location and time and of the identity of the device that collected them. This results in greater trust in the collected data and the models and analytics produced. Accurate models can also be used to create digital twins, allowing for accurate digital representations of objects, machines, buildings, and cities. Finally, blockchain tokens and other digital assets can be used to represent devices, device identities, and device ownership.

This workshop seeks proposals from blockchain experts in industry and academia to address topics in blockchain-based IoT devices and networks. Priority will be given to real-world use cases that can be implemented today and complement other conference themes such as identities, payments, and data-driven analytics.

Topics of Interest

We invite submissions on a wide range of research topics, spanning both theoretical and systems research, including results from industry and academic/industrial collaborations, related but not restricted to the following topics:

· Blockchain for IoT

WS5: Workshop on Augmented and Virtual Reality Applications for Post-pandemic Economic Revitalization


SCOPE
A smart destination is a destination that is committed to its environmental, cultural, and socio-economic environment, in which its infrastructures are equipped with advanced technological solutions that facilitate interaction between tourists and the destination. Augmented reality is the combination of the physical universe and the virtual universe through a technological device. The secret is to mix virtual and real information in the same environment, interacting in real-time and using the three-dimensional (3D) digital format. Augmented reality changes the user’s perception of and interaction with the real world, providing information not normally detected by the senses. So, the fit of the images within the device must be exact. The user can move from one place to another with it. This workshop aims to know the different applications that apply augmented reality, thus providing the basic elements that allow the construction of quality applications and that place the reader in successful results of this applied technology.
