TIFAC-CORE in Cyber Security, Coimbatore will organize a Workshop on Blockchain Technologies form March 16 - 17, 2018.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Blockchain is a leading software platform for digital assets. It is a data structure used to create a decentralized ledger and is composed of blocks in a serialized manner. A block contains a set of transactions, a hash of the previous block, timestamp, block reward, block number, and so on. Every block contains a hash of the previous block, thus creating a chain of blocks linked with each other. Every node in the network holds a copy of the blockchain. There are different consensus protocols based on Proof-of-work, proof-of-stake, etc. This technology is implemented in various real-time applications. Cryptocurrencies, in particular the First and well-known Bitcoin and others such as Ethereum, are canonical examples of the blockchain paradigm. Few other real-time applications include digital identity, smart contracts, digital voting, and IoT applications.This workshop is planned by considering the growing importance of Blockchain Technology in real world applications.

Characteristics of permissioned blockchains are significantly different from permission-less blockchains. Main theme of this workshop will be permissioned blockchains. The workshop will have invited talks from reputed academicians and practitioners.
