Event Details

Blockchain has been proposed as a system for enabling untrusted entities to contribute into maintaining a common data structure and shared ledger of a digital history without a need for intermediaries. The development and deployment of Blockchain-based systems, and their applications, need to take into consideration new requirements and challenges, thereby raising novel open issues and research questions. The Academic Track of Europe’s premier Blockchain conference, Decentralized 2019 will address the following themes:

  • Design and engineering improvements to the protocols and architectures underpinning Distributed Ledger Technologies (including Blockchains).
  • Gaining insights of the technical, business, legal, and societal implications of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies, including real-life applications and case studies.
  • The convergence of the technology with other emerging technologies (e.g., AI, IoT, VR etc.) that are becoming key elements of the fourth industrial revolution.

List of Topics
Decentralized 2019, invites researchers and industry experts to submit original contributions in the following areas (indicative list, other related topics will also be considered):

  • Industry 4.0 transformation and Blockchains
