Currently, there are two emerging areas related to Blockchain (BC): DataScience (DS) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The workshop we now propose aims to generate a collection of papers on DS and AI, into and for BC, in order to advance knowledge in this set of topics. Thus, we intend to define a new area of work and research that we have designated as Intelligence into Blockchain (iBC). The workshop intends to contribute in supporting the emergence of innovative research in this new area. Thus, this workshop assumes a strong interest in themes concerning "how and for what purposes" SD and AI are integrated in the technology of the BC, and what kind of synergies this integration generates.

Submitted papers will be anonymously reviewed by two referees; one of the referees will be an expert in Blockchain and the other in Artificial Intelligence or Data Science or Management-Economics, according to the scope of the papers.
