About the Summer School
The 1st International Summer School on Security & Privacy for Blockchains and Distributed Ledger Technologies is jointly organized by members of TU Wien (Vienna University of Technology), Princeton University, and SBA Research. In its first edition, it will be hosted by TU Wien in Vienna, Austria from September 2, 2019 to September 5, 2019.
The summer school will be organized in lectures and hackathons, providing a mix of in-depth research presentations and hands-on experience, and it will focus on published and current high-impact research projects. The school covers cutting-edge topics on blockchains and other distributed ledger technologies to foster understanding of their respective security and privacy specific requirements and guarantees by bringing together academic researchers and experts from industry. Example topics include, but are not limited to: novel attacks on distributed systems; consensus protocols and fault tolerance; incentive structures, such as proof-of-work and proof-of-stake; recent results on blockchain scalability, payment channels and state channels; advancements on smart contracts; or, realistic adversarial capabilities.
Students will have networking opportunities with experts from academia and industry, sponsors, and among each other. They will also have the opportunity to present their own results in front of experts from academia and industry in the form of lightning talks and poster presentations.
