4th Annual ZKProof WorkshopHome Edition

Amid the continuing health concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), the ZKProof Steering Committee has decided to hold the 4th ZKProof Workshop as an online conference.

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.

Our immersive online workshop experience encompasses our goals, focusing on productive interactions and the high-quality discussions. This virtual format will make the workshop accessible and enable even more community members to take an active role in the standardization initiative.

The Agenda

The workshop will take place over two weeks. Every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday we will host a 3 hour talk and a discussion. Keep an eye for the full schedule.

We strongly encourage everyone to join us in every session, because we value community participation and many of the discussions will continue from one session to another. Furthermore, we are hosting networking sessions throughout the event where you will be able to meet your peers, have tea with a friend, and more.

We thank our sponsors for their support.
