Presentation and Objectives
Blockchain is an emerging technology that enables distributed transactions and data sharing between untrusted partners, without the need for a centralizing authority for validation. It introduces a new on-demand consensus paradigm, where a set of nodes in a network agrees with the order in which blocks of transactions are aggregated to the blockchain, providing a distributed, reliable, scalable, immutable and secure environment for the realization and storage of transactions on the Internet. The blockchain is a disruptive technology once it digitally creates a trusted entity, with the potential to replace certifying and centralizing entities of transactions, such as banks, governments, notary offices, etc. There is a large expected potential and applications are emerging from this technology in several sectors: finance, health, arts, government, etc. in addition to the computation itself.
This workshop intends to integrate researchers and developers from both academia and industry, which are interested in researching and developing blockchain applications. There are many challenges related to this topic, which involves security, privacy, storage, data availability and integrity, performance improvement, scalability, sustainability, economy, and others. Speakers and researchers are invited to discuss and present their results in the area.
