IIT Bombay, along with it’s Australia-India Council Grant’s partners: Griffith University, Data61-CSIRO, University of New South Wales, is organizing a winter school for blockchain technology. A series of talks on various academically relevant topics focusing on blockchain technology and applications will be delivered.

We invite PhD and Masters students to participate in this school. We also invite the start-ups and industry to present their case-studies during the course of this school so that the researchers get a practitioner’s view of this emerging technology and vice versa.

We aim to cover the following broad topics during this 3-day school:

  • Overview & context,
  • platforms & consensus protocols,
  • standardization & interoperability,
  • smart contracts,
  • scalability,
  • confidentiality, privacy, and anonymity,
  • governance, ecosystems, and applications
  • cryptocurrency economics and trading



The school is open for all students and academic staff of IIT Bombay and is free. However, online registration is a must for logistics. Others will be accommodated on an invitation basis only.
