Earlier this year, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) created the IEEE Blockchain Initiatives (BCI) to be the hub for all blockchain projects and activities. On October 25, IEEE BCI will be in Waterloo Region to launch their first Canadian group with a networking event at Catalyst137.
This event forms the first gathering of the new IEEE Blockchain Initiatives Group by local IEEE members. Your attendance will help support the development of the speakers bureau on blockchain applications and technologies in Waterloo Region.
Attendees will hear from academia and industry speakers, followed by a networking reception.
