Blockchain! Is it the new frontier for scholarly publishing?

New technology developments have wowed the world since the beginning of time.  There has always been those who doubt these new developments and unfortunately, these doubters slow up progress.  The scholarly publishing industry has not moved swiftly to adapt to new technologies as we have seen the uptake of digital books to take over 15 years. It has been over 12 years since the first iPhone was launched and still some publisher’s content both book and journal are still not available on the mobile device.

Most folks only equate Blockchain against the hype of bitcoin.  However, Blockchain is so much more than bitcoin.  Most folks truly do not understand Blockchain and its capabilities and potential.  This talk’s objective is set to change that by addressing the following topics.

1.    Primer on Blockchain and its capabilities
2.    What Blockchain is and what it is not
3.    How will Blockchain interact with the semantic web
4.    How Blockchain will help the scholarly publishing industry achieve new partnerships
5.    Discover the potential applications that publishers can avail themselves to use within their businesses
6.    Last but not least how it will create the railroad tracks for the semantic web.  

This session will provide the insight and answers to all of these topics and the presenter will share his advice as to the recent developments in not only the scholarly publishing industry and other related industries.

This session will be the talk of the conference and you will be able to provide your colleagues with your new great insights about Blockchain and why it is the new frontier for scholarly publishing.
