Event Details

Introducing the Home Edition of the ZKProof Workshop:


Amid health concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), and after much internal discussion, the ZKProof Steering Committee has decided to forgo a physical gathering in London and to hold this year’s 3rd ZKProof Workshop as an online conference.


Dates: April 20 - May 21, every Monday and Thursday at 3pm UTC.

New Registration: Register on this Eventbrite page. There is a reduced fee of 30 GPB. The first 150 registrations wil receive a surprise kit to their doorstep. Authors of proposals will receive a free ticket.

Location: Zoom conference room - participants will receive a link to the event.

Schedule: Please find the full schedule here. We have added a Google Calendar so you can easily track any changes.

 

Turning Lemons into Lemonade

The goals of the ZKProof initiative are to promote the standardization of zero-knowledge proof cryptography and to increase the engagement of companies and researchers worldwide. We are aware that a virtual event limits the personal interaction that is desirable for strengthening any community, especially in the cryptography community, which benefits greatly from these interactions.

 

With that in mind, we have created an immersive online workshop experience that encompasses these goals as much as possible, focusing on productive interactions and the high-quality discussions. Moreover, we believe this format change will make the workshop extremely accessible and will allow even more community members to take an active role in the standardization initiative.

 

Restructuring the Agenda - The ZKProof Month

Given that 12 papers were accepted to the workshop (3 SoK and 9 community proposals), we decided to restructure the whole event in order to create an optimal environment for each discussion. As such, instead of 3 days of full-time talks, which is not realistic given the circumstances, the workshop will span a month of shorter segments. For five weeks, every Monday and Thursday we will host a 3 hour talk and a discussion.

 

We encourage everyone to join us in every session, mainly because we value community participation, but also because the discussions will be continued from one session to another. Furthermore, we are hosting a networking session every day where you will be able to meet your peers, have tea with a friend, and more.

 

 For the full schedule, visit the main event page.

 

To make this workshop a success we encourage everyone to participate in discussions both online and offline, and as such we have set up three different types of tools

 

  • Zoom for talks and live discussions
  • The community forum and our Telegram group for offline discussions and chats
  • Collaborative tools for simultaneous work: (1) hackmd for writing and note-taking; (2) Miro for visuals and diagrams

 

The accepted papers will be published and we encourage all participants to review them before the discussions in order to have more productive sessions.
