Virginia Tech hosts inaugural summit on blockchain technology

Virginia Tech will host blockchain thought leaders from around the world for its inaugural Blocksburg Summit: Blockchain and Beyond Nov. 10-12, 2019, at the Inn at Virginia Tech and Conference Center.

Attendees will hear from experts across the enterprise, education, and government spectrum while participating in a networking event aimed at understanding the challenges and opportunities of a blockchain future. Registration will be open through Nov. 4.

Part of the Virginia Tech Blockchain Initiative led by the Department of Computer Science in the College of Engineering, the event is designed to catalyze commonwealth, federal, and private collaboration on blockchain technologies in service to the international community.

“Virginia Tech has always served as a connection hub for diverse-minded thinkers, so it made sense to create a greater footprint for the university’s leadership and interest in blockchain technology,” said Kirk W. Cameron, associate department head for research an engagement in the Department of Computer Science. He is one of the first faculty members at Virginia Tech to teach a blockchain technology capstone course in the spring 2019 semester.
