Special track

IOTBCHAIN: Internet of Things and Blockchain

Chair and Coordinator

Dr. Nicola Fabiano, Studio Legale Fabiano, Rome, Italy

along with
INTERNET 2018, The Tenth International Conference on Evolving Internet
June 24, 2018 to June 28, 2018 – Venice, Italy

Internet of Things (IoT) is evolving continuously and we can define it also as Internet of everything. Blockchain is another emerging phenomenon with great potential both for its applications and for the legal issues related to it. Blockchain is a decentralized technology or distributed approach on which transactions are anonymously recorded. Blockchain is a special self-maintaining database. Each entity in IoT networking can use blockchain services. Blockchain crosses jurisdictional boundaries as the nodes on a blockchain can be located anywhere on the planet. This might rise numerous and complex jurisdictional issues which ask for careful consideration in relation to the relevant contractual relationships.
There issues to b explored related to service levels, performance, liability, intellectual property, data privacy, autonomous organization, smart contacts (between things), compliance, due diligence, yet enforcing scalability and security.

  • Internet of Things and Internet of Everything
