Decentralized Blockchain technology and its manifold applications such as smart contracts and cryptocurrencies are intensively discussed in industry and academia. Although decentralization has many advantages such as being more resilient to cyberattacks and offering fair distribution of revenues, the further adoption of blockchain technology faces fundamental challenges including poor scalability and security vulnerabilities with potentially fatal consequences, but also economic and legal questions related to emerging applications and technology transfer, for example, in the domain of Internet of Things (IoT).
The goal of this symposium is to address these interdisciplinary challenges with some of the leading experts on blockchain technology from both academia and industry.

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
