Description

Blockchain is the technology that powers Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. It is a distributed technology that relies on sharing transactional data among a network of participants who do not necessarily trust each other. Recent blockchain technologies also allow programs, known as smart contracts, to be deployed and executed on a blockchain (https://www.ethereum.org) with the purpose of enabling more complex transactions.

Business Process Management (BPM) is a discipline that applies IT systems to operational business processes performed in an organizational or technical environment. Additionally, BPM is concerned with the design and execution of business process choreographies - inter-organizational processes that describe the interaction between different organizations. 

In this seminar, we focus on investigating blockchains technologies for executing process choreographies assuring a trustworthy interaction among participants who do not necessarily trust each other. Students will have the opportunity to learn and understand state-of-the-art blockchain technologies and implement small prototypes in a BPM context. 

Requirements

This lecture is for master students with an interest in BPM and blockchain technologies.
