Hardly a day goes by without a news story about Bitcoin or Ethereum, two of the best known and strongest cybercurrency technologies. Opinions run the spectrum, from those who view it as mainly a monetary vehicle for criminal activity to those who praise its empowering ability for individuals disenfranchised by traditional financial systems. In between are found those who see it as the foundation for a new economy. Everyone agrees that one of the most important legacies of cybercurrency technologies is the introduction of the Blockchain ecosystem. As a network of replicated databases, Blockchain has been proposed to address integrity issues of numerous systems other than cybercurrencies. This lecture will explain the fundamentals behind the important cybercurrencies, including Blockchain concepts and the mining process. It will also address why, in the opinion of the speaker, these systems should be taken seriously and how they have initiated important discussions, applications, and research opportunities.
The Second Workshop on Internet of Things will be held jointly with Data2018 Conference, Madrid, Spain.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020.

Bebo White is a Departmental Associate (Emeritus) at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, the basic energy science and high-energy physics laboratory operated by Stanford University. Prior to retirement he worked at SLAC as a Computational Physicist and Senior Computing Information Systems Analyst. He is also a Visiting Professor of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong.
While his initial responsibilities at SLAC were in computational physics, in recent years Professor White's work has been dominated by his involvement with World Wide Web technology. He first became involved with WWW development while on sabbatical at CERN in 1989 and was instrumental in establishing the first non-European Web site at SLAC in 1991.
Professor White has lectured and spoken internationally to academic and commercial audiences. He is the author of eight books and over one hundred journal/proceedings articles. In addition, he has been actively involved with the planning and execution of five major international conference series: The International World Wide Web Conference, The International Conference on Web Engineering, The IADIS International Conference on WWW/Internet, The International Conference on ICT in Teaching and Learning, and The Web Science Conference. His current research interests include The Internet of Things, Cybercurrencies/Bitcoin and Blockchain, The Future of User Interaction Design, and Social Media in Education.

He is a frequent keynote at major industry conferences and is a widely published author of articles and research reports. He also is the co-author of two books, The Nexus Framework For Scaling Scrum and Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design. He led the development of the Rational Unified Process (RUP) for IBM/Rational. After IBM/Rational, West returned to consulting and managed Ivar Jacobson Consulting for North America. Then he served as vice president, research director at Forrester Research, where he worked with leading IT organizations and solutions providers to define, drive and advance Agile-based methodology and tool breakthroughs in the enterprise.
01 OctDay 1
02 OctDay 2
Abstract: Software is created by teams and teams of teams. Thus creating high performance teams is the holy grail of software development process improvement. But what does high performance really mean? In this talk Dave West Product Owner Scrum.org and former Forrester Analyst talks about how Scrum has become the most popular Agile approach and how it can help organizations build high performance teams using Scrum to bring everyone together in a simple, light weight framework. He describes the genesis of Scrum, and how organizations are employing Scrum at the team and product level. He will introduce the idea of professional Scrum and how the mechanics of Scrum combined with technical excellence and pursuit of the Scrum values enables organizations to transform their delivery teams. He will highlight where Scrum makes sense and where it does not.
