IEEE DySPAN 2017 Workshop: The Blockchain Bandwagon - The Spectrum Perspective

Blockchain can be considered as much an ideology as it is a technology. The venture capitalist and software developer Marc Andreesen considers blockchain to be as important and revolutionary as the Internet. It is therefore reasonable to expect that aspects of this technology and the ideology have the potential to underpin concepts, frameworks, regulations, and economics in the world of dynamic spectrum access.

This workshop will focus on the role of the blockchain in the spectrum world. We see this workshop as a mixture of tutorial, workshop and brainstorm for future DySPAN conferences – hence it can in principle be consider as a dual function submission.
