Special Issue Call for Papers

Theme: The fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, brings together digital and physical technologies to create responsive
and interconnected operations. Companies use AI, robotics, edge computing, and the cloud to make informed and timely
decisions from the supply chain to the smart factory. Solutions designed for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) use
connected sensors and edge devices to help improve product quality and operational efficiency in factories in real-time. While
the benefits are numerous, there are several challenges posed on IIoT before the formal adoption of IIoT across various
industrial sectors. Among them, data storage, data analytics, energy saving, security and privacy preservation on IIoT data are
the most crucial concerns. Advanced computing and blockchain have great potential to create new foundations for most
distributed systems by efficiently establishing trust among nodes. It is a fundamental technology to enable decentralization
and play an essential role in critical Industrial IoT Applications. This special issue will explore how advanced computing and
blockchain technology has the potential to overcome the challenges mentioned above.

This special section will focus on (but not limited to) the following topics:
• Use-cases of advanced computing and blockchain for IIoT applications
• Blockchain-based applications for IIoT
• Blockchain for Industrial Internet of Things applications
• Blockchain-based Technology for Industrial Control System
• Blockchain for Smart Transport application
• Blockchain in Supply Chain
• Blockchains in Smart Grids
• Blockchains in SCADA
• Blockchain technology for Smart Cities
• Blockchain for securing cyberinfrastructure
• Blockchain-based security solutions of critical infrastructures
• Quantum cryptography for IIoT
• Quantum algorithms for IIoT
• Service-oriented blockchains in IIoT
• Blockchain for cybersecurity in IIoT
• Lightweight protocols and algorithms for blockchains in IIoT
• Blockchain for multiaccess edge computing (MEC)
• Blockchain for Industry 4.0 cybersecurity applications
• Blockchain for securing cyberinfrastructure and IIoT
• Blockchain-based security solutions of critical infrastructures
