2nd Symposium on Distributed Ledger Technology - SDLT'2018
2nd Symposium on Distributed Ledger Technology - SDLT'2018

Distributed Ledger Technology is an emerging technology, which provides the way to store and manage information in a distributed fashion. It enables the creation of decentralized crypto-currencies, smart contracts, eGovernance, supply chain management, eVoting etc over a network of computer systems without any human intervention. Unprecedented reliability and security over other cryptographic schemes have expanded the application domains of blockchain including financial services, real estate, stock exchange, identity management, supply chain, and the Internet of Things. The 2nd annual symposium aims to provide a forum for researchers, business leaders and policymakers in this area to carefully analyse current systems or propose new solutions creating a scientific background for a solid development of innovative Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) applications.
