Blockchain technology supports the execution and storage of transactions in a decentralized, transparent and immutable fashion. It is part of a broader set of technologies referred to as Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs). Cryptocurrencies represented the first major application of blockchain. Then, the development of smart contracts has provided the opportunity to manage other types of assets and to implement business logic running on blockchain platforms. Finally, the era of broader applications of blockchain technology beyond currencies, finance and markets has emerged. This evolution was coined Blockchain 1.0, Blockchain 2.0 and Blockchain 3.0 respectively.

The opportunities related to the evolution of blockchain technology, along with their challenges have generated a strong and continuously growing interest from industry and academia in the engineering of blockchain-based information systems, and more particularly, in the engineering of blockchain-based solutions for Business Process Management (BPM). Beside classical engineering questions, new and specific challenges arise for blockchain-based solutions for organizations and for BPM, to which conceptual modeling, databases, ontology engineering and information systems communities could provide relevant answers. In particular, the workshop focuses on the definition of requirements for, development, use, and evolution of blockchain-based solutions.
