Apologies for multiple postings
Dear All,

you are kindly invited to actively participate to the ERF 2020 Workshop on
' Blockchain, Web 3.0 and 'Future Internet' applications in Robotics' which
will be held in  Malaga (Spain), EU on March 4th 2020).

This is the second edition of the  European workshop on the applications of
the blockchain technologies to Robotics.

The robotization of economy and society will ultimately lead to the
ubiquitous spread of “'smart cities”, "smart sprawls" and smart supply
chains. A main issue is that data collected by Cyber-Physical-Systems
contain critical or private information. Citizens  should be allowed to
keep the ownership of their own personal data. Moreover, large-scale
robotic and AI applications such as those envisioned by smart-cities and
smart supply-chains face serious challenges due to the system and network
heterogeneity and multi-vendor environments.

The Blockchain, a public ledger whose information is protected by a
consensus public algorithm, gives the possibility to create  adaptive
networks of multi-vendor heterogeneous robotic devices, without the data
centralization and privacy issues of  current mainstream approaches.
Distributed peer-to-peer computing platform such the Ethereum blockchain
are already showing opportunities to make robotic applications more
distributed, responsive, secure and simplified in development.

Which issues (technical, production, legal), slow down the development and
widespread usage of robotic applications based on the blockchain into the
real world?

If you are interested to present you ideas/platform/results send a 300
words free format abstract by January 23rd. Notification By February 1st.

*There will be post-proceedings.*

We look forward your active participation

Happy Holidays!

All the best
