Dear all,
We cordially invite you to the talk by Sönke Bartling:
 Blockchain For Science - New Opportunities Ranging From Provable Data, Decentralized Journals And New Funding Mechanisms

The blockchain revolution offers great new potentials for science and knowledge creation. Blockchain uses strong cryptography and economic incentives to make digital goods immutable and externally provable. Furthermore, it provides new user autonomy in form of private keys that are controlled by the user and used to cryptographically sign changes to a system.
In research, data acquisition and post-processing can become immutable and provable to the outside world. This bears the potential to recreate trust in research data. Censorship-proof cryptocloud based journal systems and data repositories can be realized.
Sönke Bartling, the founder of the think tank and hub BlockchainForScience.com<http://BlockchainForScience.com>, is currently holding an associate researcher position at the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (hiig.de<http://hiig.de>) in Berlin, Germany. Radiologist by training, he is also focusing on medical imaging as a senior scientists at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg.
