The objective of the 6th IEEE International Conference on Decentralized Applications and Infrastructures (IEEE DAPPS 2024) is to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners in the area of Decentralized Applications (dApps) based on Distributed Ledger Technologies, Blockchains and related technologies. The conference is part of the IEEE CISOSE 2024 congress.

Blockchain has already established itself in the domains of digital payments and cryptocurrencies. However, the potential implications of Blockchain technologies go far beyond their application as the technological backbone for cryptocurrencies. dApps are expected to become a key building block for a plethora of highly expressive applications.

dApps allow for various novel application scenarios, which are built upon distributed consensus and thus are hard to block or censor while providing public verifiability of peer-to-peer transactions without a trusted central party. For that, permissionless Blockchains such as Bitcoin or Ethereum rely on an unrestricted set of participants that run a (time-consuming and energy-hungry) consensus algorithm among them. In contrast, permissioned Blockchains, such as Hyperledger Fabric, distribute trust among a restricted set of consensus participants, a setup that can be well suited to model enterprise application scenarios in a more scalable fashion.

IEEE DAPPS 2024 will provide a high-quality forum for participants from research and industry. The conference will discuss key theories, algorithms, infrastructures, and significant deployments for dApps and decentralized infrastructures, as well as emerging research topics.
