5 Days Workshop on Blockchain Technology and its Applications


5 Days Workshop on Blockchain Technology and its Applications

17thJanuary 2022 to 21stJanuary 2022


About the Workshop

Blockchain Technology is an emerging technology suitable for decentralised and transactional sharing of data across a large network of untrusted participants. It is an innovative distributed ledger technology where verification data for the transactional records is cryptographically secured against tampering and stored in blocks. Each block contains details of transactions, hash of the previous block, timestamp etc. Blocks are linked with each other, leading to a Block Chain and this is stored at every node in the network. This enables transparency and gives a unique solution to the problem of trust in the digital world, leading towards decentralised trust. It has good potential to transform the logging and management of transactions in different application areas. This technology is successfully used in Bitcoin virtual currency and it also has good potential in non-financial sectors such as Governance, healthcare, cyber security, automobiles, media, travel, hospitality, energy, smart cities, time stamping, logging of important events in a system, recording transactions, etc.

This workshop is intended to provide opportunities for educationalist, researchers, professionals and students to upgrade their knowledge in the area of Blockchain Technology. Considering the growing importance of Blockchain Technologies and its potential in different sectors, this five-days’ workshop is planned and sessions would be delivered by experts from academia and industry.
