These are some useful resources used by myself and my research group for getting started.

This is not meant to be complete but gives some options to start with for financial technology papers. I would be content with a publication at any one of these.

  • Conferences: ACM CCS: Blockchain Track, Financial Cryptography (FC), Advances in Financial Technologies (AFT)
  • Workshops: WTSC/DeFi (@FC), DeFiSec (@CCS), CBT (@ESORICS)
  • Events: Science of Blockchain Conference (SBC), Devcon, Cryptoeconomics and Security Conference (CESC)
  • RIP: Bitcoin Workshop (@FC), IEEE S&B (@EuroSP), BCC (@AsiaCCS)
Additionally, the top security and cryptography venues also accept the top finanical technology papers:
  • General conferences: IEEE Symposium on Security & Privacy (Oakland), ACM CCS, USENIX Security, CRYPTO, EUROCRYPT, ASIACRYPT (followed by: NDSS, IEEE EuroS&P, PETS, SOUPS, ACM AsiaCCS, CT-RSA, PKC, ACSAC, ESORICS)
  • General magazines: Communications of the ACM, IEEE Security & Privacy Magazine
  • General events: Real World Crypto, USENIX Enigma, Grace Hopper Celebration
