2nd ZKProof Workshop
For the second workshop we are publishing a call for proposal and workshop submissions.
To request an invite, see here.
During the first two days, there will be a Standards Workshop, where participants will discuss and agree upon an initial set of community standards. The third day will be dedicated to an Industry & Research Showcase of existing work around zero knowledge proofs.
Drive standardization of ZKPs by creating a framework of collaboration between academia and industry.
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Berkeley Marina, California.
Wednesday April 10th to Friday April 12th, 2019
Top academics, researchers, developers, industry leaders and zero-knowledge experts.

What is ZKProof?
ZKProof is an academic and industry open initiative for standardizing Zero Knowledge Proofs, with a growing and active community.
What is a Standard?
From Wikipedia: a technical standard is an established norm or requirement in regard to technical systems. It is usually a formal document that establishes uniform engineering or technical criteria, methods, processes, and practices. A technical standard may be developed between relevant entities, increasing product safety and quality as well as fostering trust in the technology.
Why do we need a ZKP standard? And why now?
A standard fosters trust in the technology within industry usage, removing the need to rely on a single company for the security of the system and the confidentiality of their data. There is a growing interest in this technology and we want to see the industry grow with a strong foundation.
Where does ZKProof stand at the moment?
We held our first workshop back in May, which proved to be a success. We published three documents relating the discussions we had during the breakout sessions, as well as the state-of-the-art in each of the topics.
I want to help, how can I join the effort?
There are several ways to get involved with ZKProof: join the ZKProof community group to receive the latest updates and stay in the loop; join the Interoperability WG to contribute to the open problems and standard proposals around library and compiler interoperability; become a sponsor of the effort by sending us an email; follow us on twitter @zkproof.
