The perfect way to make some new connections or just unwind and relax after the official Devcon4 event on Friday.

Which computing infrastructure for a decentralized world ?

As we enter the era of decentralization, we will see profound changes in the foundations of the Internet itself. Public blockchains such as Ethereum become the central element of decentralized applications. Smart contract programming allows for the exchange of value and data, solves identification and authorization problems and brings out new algorithms for consensus and economic incentives. Nevertheless we are still far from the promise of a “global computer”.

In coordination with Devcon4 conference, the first iExec workshop aims to bring together those for whom infrastructure and evolution of the internet is an important subject. The summit will be attended by Dapp developers, miners, blockchain hackers decentralized protocol designers from startups, industry, academic backgrounds.

The objective of the workshop is to exchange experiences on the implementation of these emerging blockchain-based decentralized infrastructures. A high-level program of reputable speakers from the field will address topics such as scalability, security, performance, protocol design and evaluation, and many more. A particular focus on iExec will allow everyone to get hands-on with the technology in a simple and informative way. In addition, several sessions will be dedicated to executing real life applications. The workshop is free and open to the general public. Anyone interested in learning more about using state-of-the-art technologies around the Ethereum blockchain is welcome.

Topics

We would like to invite you to contribute your knowledge. We encourage contributions in the form of technical talks that address (but are not limited) the following topics:

  • Middleware for decentralized computing infrastructure management
  • Oracles and off-chain computing: specification, implementation
  • Sidechain and second-layer scalability solutions
  • Enclaves (à la Intel SGX) and trusted execution environments
  • Decentralized applications (Dapps) and services
  • Decentralized storage and data sharing
  • Software toolkits and developer tools (debugging, perf. analysis)
  • Mining infrastructures
  • PoW alternatives: PoS, PoA, etc…
  • Hybrid public/private blockchains

If you would like to suggest an idea for a contribution, be it a presentation, workshop, or just a topic for discussion, free to submit your contribution (name, affiliation, short bio, title and abstract) to summit@iex.ec.
