IEEE Blockchain Initiative Turkey Group

Blockchain is one of the new and emerging technologies for leading industries and innovations, even if it is not fully formed, standardized or supported by best practices. In recent years, countries are paying attention to improve their knowledge, experiences, and share their good practices more than ever by organising activities, delivering speeches, publishing papers or reports, doing projects, developing products, developing rules or policies, establishing organisations, groups, initiatives, etc.

A group from Turkish universities and industries now established an initiative to support, collaborate and coordinate blockchain activities in Turkey under IEEE Blockchain Initiative Turkey Workgroup. This group is now chaired by Prof. Dr. Seref Sagiroglu (Gazi University; [email protected]). The co-chairs of this group are from industry Dr. Orhan Muratoglu (ASELSAN- [email protected] and and the university Dr. Sedat Akleylek (Ondokuz Mayis University, [email protected]).

Please communicate with the group for further information, collaboration, organisation and project.
