2nd Scientific School on Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technologies

Pula (Italy), 10-14 June 2019

The school aims at disseminating knowledge about the foundations and the applications of these technologies to researchers, PhD students, scholars and technologists in industry and academia, not excluding under- or new graduates with strong technical drive and a sufficient background.
