The aim and scope of the session is described as providing, A forum for researchers in this area to carefully analyze current systems or propose new ones, in order to create a scientific background for a solid development of new blockchain technology systems.

The two main objectives of the session will be to establish Theoretical and Empirical Studies and Engineering Applications, as well as Initial Token Offering / Initial Coin Offering Solutions.

It is expected that papers accepted for the Blockchain Session will be published in the IEEE Proceedings of 2018 International Joint Conference of Nueral Networks, and will be available after July 2018.
