MAKEblockchains 2021

Special Track: Blockchains & Machine Learning (MAKEblockchains)

in the Cross Domain Conference for Machine Learning and Knowledge Extraction (CD-MAKE 2021)

to be held in conjunction with the 16th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2021 – http://www.ares-conference.eu)

August 17 – August 20, 2021

Blockchains and Machine Learning have been core topics in information technology throughout the latter half of the past decade. While coming from different application fields, the combination of these two technologies has been put forward many times in order to combine the integrity guaranteeing capabilities inherent to blockchains with the problem solving power of machine learning technologies.

In this workshop we strive to further engage researchers from these two domains by presenting novel research in the combined field.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Application of machine learning techniques on blockchain systems
Blockchain based rights management for MAKE
Enhancing integrity in ML processes
Predicting blockchain behavior
Smart Contracts for MAKE
ML-based Security in blockchain systems
Privacy in blockchains
Blockchains as enablers for trusted machine learning
