1st International Workshop on Conceptual Modeling for Distributed Ledger Technologies (MOD-DLT)


Co-located with the Modellierung'2020 Conference at University of Vienna, Austria (19.-21. February 2020)



Hans-Georg Fill, University of Fribourg, Switzerland
Julius Köpke, Alpen-Adria-University Klagenfurt, Austria


Aims and Scope

Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) have recently gained much attention in academia and industry. Well-known examples are blockchain-based approaches for cryptocurrencies or smart contracts for the automated, distributed and transparent execution of algorithms without intermediaries. For introducing these technologies in real-life enterprise scenarios it is however essential to align them with business requirements and show their added value. For this purpose, methods of conceptual modeling can contribute for enabling the communication in organizations, deriving and aligning requirements for technical implementations or even creating code that can be executed using DLT. In this workshop we thus aim to bring together researchers working on the interface between conceptual modeling and DLT for presenting and discussing their most recent research results. The workshop will be held for the first time in the context of the Modellierung'2020 conference in Vienna, Austria.
