BACK TO EVENTS
This year we would like to place a stronger focus on the following topics:Simulation, modeling and testingMethods and tools for simulation and testing of blockchain behaviorGame theory and Mechanism DesignFungibilityEnhancement of ScriptingNew Validation Methods
We also welcome compilation/review of material on above topics made available to public since the last Scaling Bitcoin event.Other topics of interest include:Improving Bitcoin throughputLayer 2 ideas (i.e. payment channels, etc.)Security and privacyIncentives and fee structuresNetwork resilienceAnti-spam measuresBlock size proposalsEmpirical mining data
All as related to the scalability of Bitcoin.Apart from general presentations and workshop, we plan to accept a limited number of short engineering presentations to cover state-of-the-art engineering progress after the submission deadline. Details of the short presentation submission will be announced later.
While proposals that may apply to digital currencies in general are welcome, this event deals with the scalability of Bitcoin, and submissions which focus primarily on other digital currency systems are out of scope for this event.
- WHO SHOULD ATTEND -Engineers (related areas of expertise)Academics with research in related areasJournalists affiliated with technical publications
How do the Workshops work?Events are live-streamed with remote participation facilitated via IRC for parallel online discussion and passing questions to the event.These workshops aim to facilitate the existing Bitcoin Improvement Proposals process. Most work will be done outside of the workshops in the intervening months. The workshops serve to be additive to the design and review process by raising awareness of diverse points of view, studies, simulations and proposals.Travel, venue details, accommodation recommendation are available below.Please see the FAQ section below, it should answer most other questions.
All talks will be live-streamed and published online, including slide decks.Scaling Bitcoin Workshop does not have proceedings.There are no submission restrictions - authors of presented submissions can submit to any other conference.
