Event Details

Scaling the Edge

‘Scaling the Edge’ focuses on scaling the rate of Bitcoin technology research, innovation and adoption:

  • RESEARCH: establishing and understanding the leading-edge of cryptography for cryptocurrencies
  • INNOVATION: identifying and evolving protocol characteristics that foster open innovation by industry
  • ADOPTION: driving bitcoin technology development capacity and end-user adoption

Travel Subsidy

There exists a number of independent or academic researchers that could be helpful to the process but are unlikely to attend due to cost. The Sponsors of this event have agreed to review applications for travel assistance, and to jointly subsidize the expense of up to $1,500 USD per person for airfare and hotel to the workshop of an estimated 15 persons. The intent is for independence and a diversity of views to be represented in a professional manner, some of which may disagree with the views of the sponsors. Those who work at a company engaged in a related business are expected to cover their own travel expenses. Exceptions could be made on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the sponsors.
Important Dates:

  • 2017-08-28 23:59 UTC – Last day for travel subsidy application
  • 2017-09-01 23:59 UTC – Deadline for applicant acceptance notification
  • 2017-11-07 23:59 UTC – Deadline for submission of travel receipts

Call for Proposals

The current Scaling Bitcoin Workshop will take place November 4th -5th at the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center 326 Galvez Street Stanford, CA 94305-6105, USA. We are accepting technical proposals for improving Bitcoin performance including designs, experimental results, and comparisons against other proposals. The goals are twofold: 1) to present potential solutions to scalability challenges while identifying key areas for further research and 2) to provide a venue where researchers, developers, and miners can communicate about Bitcoin development.

We are accepting two types of proposals: one in which accepted authors will have an opportunity to give a 20-30 minute presentation at the workshop, and another where accepted authors can run an hour-long interactive workshop.

This year we would like to place a stronger focus on the following topics:

  • Simulation, modeling and testing
    (methods and tools for simulation and testing of blockchain behavior)
  • Game theory and Mechanism Design
  • Fungibility

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 throughput
  • Layer 2 ideas (i.e. payment channels, etc.)
  • Security and privacy
  • Incentives and fee structures
  • Network resilience
  • Anti-spam measures
  • Block size proposals
  • Mining concerns

All as related to the scalability of Bitcoin.
