Starting this year, MARBLE will adopt a double-anonymous reviewing policy, i.e., all submissions must be anonymized and may not contain any identifying information of the authors. Submitted papers must be original and contain work that has not been published before or is under review elsewhere.

Accepted papers will be published by Springer Nature as part of the Springer Proceedings in Business and Economics book series (SPBE). Full paper submissions of up to 16 pages and short paper submissions of up to 8 pages (including references) should be prepared according to the guidelines and submitted through the Easychair conference submission system.

To submit your paper to MARBLE 2023, please follow this link and submit via the Easychair conference system. 

Previous editions:

Authors of accepted papers will have the option to publish only a one-page abstract of the paper in the conference proceedings, along with a URL pointing to the full paper. Authors should guarantee the link to be reliable for at least two years. One-page abstracts will not be eligible for the best paper awards.

Special Issue

Extended versions (>50% than proceedings) of selected papers will be invited for a Special Issue at the IET Blockchain journal.


Best Paper Awards

The program committee will decide upon a best paper award and a best student paper award.


All questions about submissions should be emailed to
