Workshop on Blockchain and its Applications

About the Workshop 

  • Blockchain is an emerging platform for developing decentralized applications and data storage, over and beyond its role as a platform for cryptocurrencies. The basic tenet of this platform is that it allows one to create a distributed and replicated ledger of events, transactions, and data generated through various IT processes with strong cryptographic guarantees of tamper resistance, immutability, and verifiability. Public blockchain platforms allow us to guarantee these properties with overwhelming probabilities even when untrusted users are participants of distributed applications. Even though, blockchain technology has become popularly known because of its use in the implementation of Cryptocurrencies such as BitCoin, Ethereum, etc., the blockchain platform holds much more promise in various areas such as time stamping, logging of important events in a system, recording transactions, e-governance etc. Many researchers are working on many such use cases such as Key Distribution, registry maintenance, health record management, decentralized authentication, decentralized DNS, etc. Also, corporations such as IBM and Microsoft are developing their own applications in diverse fields such as the Internet of Things (IoT). This workshop invites students, academicians and industry researchers to share innovative research work, projects, and their knowledge base in this burgeoning field of technology.

Objectives of the Workshop 

  • To disseminate of the knowledge of blockchain technology among students, researchers and academicians. The overarching goal is to create awareness and interest in this technology among students, and researchers. Trained manpower in this field is a growing necessity for the country.
  • To discuss the current status of the blockchain development and research work in India and across the world.
  • To bring together researchers to presents their 'work in progress' on blockchain and receive expert comments on such work in progress.
