Paper Submission Guideline
Each paper is limited to 8 pages for regular papers and 6 pages for workshop papers in IEEE Computer Society proceedings format (or up to 2 extra pages with page over length charge if it is accepted), including tables, figures, references and appendices. All papers need to be submitted electronically through the corresponding websites with PDF format.

All submissions should be anonymous. No author name or affiliation (including acknowledgement) can be included in the paper. Submissions violating these rules will be rejected without being reviewed.
Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work in person. IEEE Blockchain 2023 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the digital library and indexing services), if the paper is not presented at the conference. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements. Two outstanding papers will be selected to receive the Best Paper Awards.
* Instruction for Double-blind Submission
• Remove the names and affiliations of authors from the title page.
• Remove acknowledgments.
• Remove project titles or names that could be used to trace back to the authors via web search.
• Carefully name your files to anonymize author information.
• Carefully refer to related work, particularly your own. Do not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer incapable of grasping the context. Instead, reference your past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece of related work by another author. For example, instead of "In prior work , we presented a scheme that ...," sentences in the spirit of "In prior work, Clark et al.  presented a scheme that ..." should be used. With this method, the full citation of the referred paper can still be given, such as " A. Clark …., "Analysis of...", and it is not acceptable to say " Reference deleted for double-blind review."
• The submitted manuscript or its title/abstract should not be posted on a public website, such as arxiv.org, or transmitted via public mailing lists.
• The submitted manuscript (PDF file) should be text-searchable. Any submission that does not meet this requirement may be returned without review.
• Many of the editing tools automatically add metadata to the generated PDF file containing information that may violate the double blind policy. Please remove any possible metadata that can link your manuscript to you. This includes removing names, affiliation, license numbers etc. from the Metadata as well as from the paper. Failing to meet this requirement may also lead to a rejection without review.
