TOP4 – BlockChains and Applications

Date:  Wednesday, 7 February 2018
Time:  10:30-12:30, 13:30-15:30, & 16:00-18:00
Room: 4202
Track Summary

The relatively new technology behind block chains promises to create new offerings in the IoT space that dis-intermediate many of the current business models that require third party aggregators to function. The track on Block Chains is intended to provide information about developments in this new area and practical examples of applications that can benefit from the technology. Topics to be covered include:

  • Block chain use in data sharing environments
  • Hardening and security of block chains and IoT systems
  • Novel block chain approaches for IoT
  • Challenges to the adoption of block chain technology
  • Infrastructure solution for block chain
  • Real-world applications of block chain

In addition, there will be a presentation on a newly formed IEEE Block Chain Initiative and a working discussion on future directions and possible activities in the block chain IoT space.
