Blockchain is an emerging technology that comprises a set of nodes without a pre-existing trust relationship and connected through a peer-to-peer topology. The five essential characteristics of blockchain technologies; namely, decentralization, consensus, immutability, provenance, and finality, enable new forms of distributed software architectures, where agreement on shared states can be established without trusting a central integration point. A major difficulty for architects designing applications based on blockchain is that technology has many configurations and variants. Since blockchains are at an early stage, there is little scientific evidence, product data or reliable technology evaluation available to compare different blockchain-based architectural designs.

The goal of this workshop is to shed the light on architectural issues, concerns, and solutions that emerge with the blockchains technologies.
