[DMANET] IEEE BCCA 2022: The 4th International Conference on Blockchain Computing and Applications

*The Fourth International Conference on Blockchain Computing and
Applications (BCCA 2022)*

*SEP. 05 – 07, 2022 – SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, USA*

Blockchain is a revolutionary technology in decentralized systems that
enables secure decentralized transaction processing while ensuring data
privacy and authenticity. It is now playing a significant role in several
areas such as the Internet of Things, supply-chain management,
manufacturing, cyber-physical systems, healthcare systems, and much more.
Unlike centralized transaction processing solutions, blockchain uses a
distributed ledger mechanism to record data transactions on multiple
devices, this will prevent data breach, identity theft, and a plethora of
cyber-related attacks, in essence, leading to a sustainability in data
privacy and security. This conference aims to attract work of both
researchers and practitioners in the area of cyber-security to share and
exchange their experiences and research studies in both academia and
industry in the field of blockchain.
