Title: Traceability: Decentralized Federated Learning under the Blockchain
Blockchain and federated learning, as fast-growing emerging industrial technologies, are widely used in manufacturing, agriculture, tourism, medical care, and other industries. On the one hand, blockchain enables decentralized and immutable data storage. On the other hand, federated learning has achieved great success in solving the problem of data islands. This workshop calls for works demonstrating the most recent progress and contributions to blockchain-based federated learning. In particular, this workshop will focus on including but not limited to the following aspects:
(1) Federated learning based on blockchain to achieve decentralized privacy protection.
(2) Combined with the limited resources of the Internet of Things (IoT), it is used in IoT to implement blockchain-based federated learning.
(3) For traceability, audit, and so on aspects of the learning scheme based on blockchain.
(4) A decentralized system based on blockchain with privacy, security, and credibility.
(5) Security, privacy, and trust for 6G-enabled ubiquitous, intelligent, and cooperative sensing.
(6)IoT technologies with artificial intelligence (AI) for smart cities, precision agriculture, industry 4.0 solutions, self-driving vehicles and health tracking, etc.
