The Science of Blockchain Conference 2022

Arrillaga Alumni Center, Stanford University
Aug. 29 - 31, 2022

The conference focuses on technical innovations in the blockchain ecosystem, and brings together researchers and practioners working in the space. We are interested in the application of cryptography, decentralized protocols, formal methods, and empirical analysis, to improving the security and scalability of blockchain deployments. We aim to foster collaboration among practitioners and researchers working on blockchain protocol development, cryptography, distributed systems, secure computing, crypto-economics, and economic risk analysis.

The conference is co-organized by the Stanford Center for Blockchain Research (CBR) and IC3.
