The University of Nicosia (UNIC), the leading global provider of education and research in blockchain technology and digital currencies, invites registrations to “DECENTRALIZED 2018”. The pioneering conference, organised for the first time last year in Cyprus with tremendous success, will take place this year in Athens, between November 14 and 16, at the Divani Caravel Hotel.
This world-class summit will feature 70+ speakers (business executives, academics, and technical experts) from over 50 countries, exchanging knowledge and ideas on the innovative business and political implications of blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies. Over 20 companies from Greece and abroad will participate as exhibitors, presenting their innovative products and services to 1,000 attendees, mainly business executives, as well as academics, researchers and students.
This year’s conference will engage with the impact of blockchain technology in areas such as financial services, supply chain management, health, public administration, and education. Additionally, there will be thematic discussions on the impact on legislation and the regulatory framework (e.g. GDPR); the formulation of policies at the European level; the social and ethical dimensions of the blockchain; and other key areas. In parallel, the latest technological developments, as well as scientific papers, will be presented, dealing particularly with the convergence of the blockchain with other technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT).
