Organized in conjunction with IEEE ICII 2019


Recent advances in Fintech data analytic have revolutionized the way humans, smart things, and engineered systems interact and exchange information. The algorithms and tools that are needed to build applications for processing gigabyte, terabyte, or petabyte-sized fintech datasets on clusters of commodity hardware are the major contributors to this area and will fuel the realization of this new, globally interconnected cyber-world. Yet, the success, prosperity, and advancement of fintech systems strongly depend on the data analytic as well as the blockchain techniques being used. Blockchain has been used in digital currency to achieve decentralized consensus and to serve as a public ledger for transactions. Its secure design for supporting a distributed computing system can create new foundations for our socio-economic systems by efficiently establishing trust among people and machines, reducing cost, and increasing utilization of resources. On one hand, blockchain will play an important role for secure decentralization in such emerging fields as Internet of Things, Cyber Physical Systems, edge computing, social networking, crowdsourcing and next generation wireless communications, and even more other fields. On the other hand, its advance should be further evolved in terms of scalability, privacy, efficiency, flexibility, availability and high dependability. While these technologies offer a lot of new possibilities, we need to develop novel tools that will constitute the heart of a much-needed science of fintech and blockchain. The goal of the fintech data analytics and Security 2019 workshop is to bring together internationally leading academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results aimed at addressing all aspects of fintech.
