IC3 hosted our Fall/Winter 2020 Retreat on December 7th and 8th to showcase the cutting-edge blockchain research conducted by IC3 members and to provide opportunities for collaboration!
The event featured an exciting schedule, including talks by IC3 faculty, students, partners, and invited guests. Talks were given via Zoom and focused around four themes:
Decentralized Finance (DeFi)
Blockchain for Financial Systems
Blockchain for Social Good
Smart Contract Assurance
After each session of talks, speakers and attendees met to discuss their work in small groups on Gather.Town to facilitate the cross-campus and industry-academia collaborations for which IC3 is known.
The retreat also featured a panel on "The Broken Fee Market" led by Phil Daian, a town hall focused on the next big thing in blockchain led by Patrick McCorry, and ample networking opportunities!
Thanks to our technical commitee of Surya Bakshi, Tyler Kell, and Patrick McCorry; and to Jim Ballingall, Veronica VanCleave-Seeley, and Sarah Allen for their work putting together this event!
