This conference explores methods of security engineering and risk management in blockchain systems. We are interested in the application of cryptography, decentralized protocols, formal methods, and empirical analysis to improving security or mitigating risk in blockchain deployments. We aim to foster multidisciplinary collaboration among practitioners and researchers in blockchain protocol development, cryptography, distributed systems, secure computing, crypto-economics, and engineering and economic risk analysis.
Conference Dates: Feb. 19 - 21, 2020.
There will be an evening reception on the first day of the conference, Feb. 19, 2020, after the day's program of talks concludes (5pm - 7pm), at Arrillaga Alumni Center.
