The 4th Workshop on Emerging Trends in Software Engineering for Blockchain aims at involving researchers interested in emerging topics and trends in software engineering with particular focus on Blockchain software systems, extending the experiences of WETSEB 2018, 2019 and 2020.
Given the new and specific challenges proposed to software engineers by the emerging Blockchain technology, since WETSEB 2018 the organizers switched workshop interest from software metrics (WETSoM 2010 to 2017) to specific software engineering for the Blockchain technology .
Motivations for this workshop are increased in the past two editions given the clear outstanding interest in software communities, in the academy, in the industry, in the finance and in the media on the Blockchain Oriented Software Engineering (BOSE) , witnessed by the larger and larger amount of publications, of start-ups and companies which in the last years exploited this new technology.
Beside the growing interest, there is still a lack of software engineering practices applied to Blockchain oriented software. This workshop aims to stimulate the interest of researchers, practitioners and people from industry in the current issues and new directions and challenges for blockchain-oriented software engineering, and at investigating the need for novel specialized software engineering practices for the Blockchain software ecosystem.

Call for Papers
The Workshop on Emerging Trends in Software Engineering for Blockchain inherits from the past eight editions of WETSoM (Workshop on Emerging Trends on Software Metrics) the challenges of gathering together researchers interested in emerging topics and trends in software engineering.
The Workshop’s goal is to discuss on the progresses and on open problems in the ongoing research and on the application of Software Engineering to Blockchain Software Systems, gathering together practitioners and researchers from academia and form industry. This concerns the blockchain technology, the smart contracts software, the integration between blockchain and external components, such as interfaces and Dapps, and all the technologies relying on it. The workshop calls researches on modelling languages, domain specific languages, tools, paradigms, principles, approaches to deal with the new challenges posed by Blockchain technology to software engineers and for a specific Blockchain Oriented Software Engineering (BOSE) .
This year we also solicit contributions on Early Research Achievements (ERA) from Ph.D. students and young researcher on the field.
