Anti Trust Policy

Linux Foundation meetings involve participation by industry competitors, and it is the intention of the Linux Foundation to conduct all of its activities in accordance with applicable antitrust and competition laws. It is therefore extremely important that attendees adhere to meeting agendas, and be aware of, and not participate in, any activities that are prohibited under applicable US state, federal or foreign antitrust and competition laws. Examples of types of actions that are prohibited at Linux Foundation meetings and in connection with Linux Foundation activities are described in the Linux Foundation Antitrust Policy available at http://www.linuxfoundation.org/antitrust-policy. If you have questions about these matters, please contact your company counsel, or if you are a member of the Linux Foundation, feel free to contact Andrew Updegrove of the firm of Gesmer Updegrove LLP, which provides legal counsel to the Linux Foundation.

Introductions from people on the call: 

1. Sovrin Foundation
Public Sector SIG member Sean O'Kelly has made a great connection with Drummond Reed, who will join us this week with leading edge updates from the Sovrin Foundation self-sovereign identity working group. Sean has informed them of the work on our white paper, and they are open to cross-organizational collaboration. We look forward to a summary of their work to date, and to making links with Sovrin.

2. Appointment of our Vice Chair!
Please join in giving a hearty welcome and congratulations to our Public Sector SIG member Alfonso Govela Thomae, who is joining for the first time this week in his capacity of Vice Chair and will be our Moderator! 

Alfonso has been a constant and tireless participant, both in our Public Sector SIG meetings, as well as a leading part of the white paper group. Alfonso is a recognised authority on blockchain and the public sector, particularly with a city level focus. He is also based in Mexico, and opens up many possibilities of better connecting the Public Sector SIG with Latin America.

Please join the call this week to show Alfonso all our support, as he has stepped up, and discuss together some exciting ideas and opportunities.

AGENDA:

1. Direct from Hyperledger
Hyperledger's very own Marta Piekarska, Director of Ecosystem, will be guest moderating this week -- Thank you, Marta!

This is a great opportunity to hear directly from a very knowledgeable member of the Hyperledger team. Please come prepared with your questions regarding Hyperledger and trends. Marta will set aside time to answer them, or connect you with the right resources. 

2. Blockchain technology making the global supply chain transparent
Public Sector SIG member Hanna Norberg has recently published a paper on how Blockchain can update the process of international trade for the University of Calgary's School of Public Policy and Global Affairs Canada. As it happens, Hanna interviewed Marta for the paper, so expect this will be both a great presentation and conversation for the group around the findings. 


3. Updates
Updates from Members who are sitting on other Working and Special Interest Groups.
Open for updates on the White Paper, as well as the RFP repository initiative, and of course any other topic members wish to bring to the floor.
