Whitepaper submission for presentation at the Hyperledger Global Forum

Based on the great work going on in the White Paper Group here, Martha suggested that the group put together and submitted an abstract for a presentation at the Hyperledger Global Forum which is coming up in March. The deadline for the submission has just been pushed forward a week, but the group here are ready to submit their application on the topic Rethinking Public Sector through Blockchain

Public Policy, Global Trade and Blockchain

Hanna has been invited to speak at a WTO conference on global trade and blockchain in December,  in a session entitled “How to Promote a Conducive Regulatory Environment”, where the “The idea of this session is to discuss governance issues, explore how best to promote a conducive regulatory and policy framework, and discuss potential follow-up actions, including for the WTO and WTO official- and specifically to pass some policy messages to trade officials.”  Based on the proposed topic of the session, we will discuss input and hard earned expertise in this group.

The goal is to have someone with interesting insights come and talk to us on the next meeting Hanna is scheduled to chair- in the beginning of November-  so ideas, suggestions and introductions are very welcome.

Updates:

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.

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.
