SPECIAL TRACK ON
Track 1-Digitalisation: Reality Check with Industry, Academia and GovernmentICACCE 2019 is pleased to announce a special track to bring in researchers engaged in “Digitalisation : Reality Check with Industry, Academia and Government” to understand adoption of Industry 4.0 as it stands today. With the emergence of advanced analytics, AI/ML, visualization, blockchain, RPA and so on, several barriers of big data, cloud, data security/privacy, automation and IoT are being breached. This special session invites current work being carried out across the spectrum from Government and Research labs, Academia and Industry from concept to realization. Original contributions from researchers describing their original, unpublished, research contribution which is not currently under review by another conference or journal and addressing state-of-the-art research are invited to share their work to be part of this special track. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings and submitted to the IEEE-Digital Library and EI Index. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present their work at the conference; otherwise, the paper will not be included in the proceedings. Submission of paper has to be double-blind: the name/s of the author/s are omitted when the paper is submitted to EasyChair paper submission link.

Track 2-Decentralized Internet and BlockchainBlockchain has laid the foundations for re-decentralization of Internet. Data Privacy (Knowing who you are is different from knowing how you are and were.) and monopolistic lock-in (unable to easily switch to another platform) are the serious concerns of a centralized Internet. In a Decentalized Internet, data is stored across nodes and not on a single server. Blockchain as a technology can assures the same, and also excels in assuring the integrity of data. However interoperability and scalability of Blockchain are concern areas, which are being worked upon. This talk would feature upon the Blockchain intricacies and how it could help in decentralization in the context of name resolution, and distributed storage in Internet.

• Knowledge of basic intellectual property concepts and how and when to use them in defensive and offensive company strategies.
• Ability to design offensive and defensive competitive moves based on intellectual property rights.
Who should attend?
• The course is particularly useful for those who are directly or indirectly involved in research, development and/or innovation, such as students, academics, research scientists, development engineers, inventors, entrepreneurs, project leaders, group leaders, and IP coordinators.
• Participants working in the technical-commercial field, such as product managers and product marketers may benefit from this course as well.
• Furthermore, the course may be beneficial for trainee patent attorneys.
No prior knowledge about IP is required.
