Semantic Smart Contracts & their Integration with Semantic Data Licensing

Student name: 
Zahra Jafari

Smart contracts are now often investigated as potential enablers of electronic machine-to-machine processable agreements on the Web, also supporting policy enforcement, as well as eBusiness.
"Smart contracts" is a relatively new keyword and approach, it is still left to be investigated how much semantic web service technology can be applicable to represent smart contracts, and how the semantic models and deployment environments of these smart contracts would look like. An additional question here is how to integrate semantic license descriptions into smart contracts.
