Global Decentralised Conference
The CL+B Fest (#clbfest2018) is a “decentralized conference” that will take place simultaneously in independent, self-organized nodes around the world in three tracks:
- LEARN, an education track (e.g., Blockchain 101, smart contract workshop);
- HACK, a 24-hour hackathon featuring several Global Challenges and prizes; and
- DISCUSS, a global policy symposium focused on blockchain issues.
The Festival is designed to be as inclusive as possible, with activity tracks for participants of all backgrounds, interests, and skill levels so we hope you’ll join us. For this event, we will have two tracks: LEARN and DISCUSS tracks of the Festival.
We have lined up an exciting panel of speakers (for the Learn track) and will likely organize a World Café session (for the Discuss track). Our speakers hail from startups, companies, law firms, universities and institutions, and will be sharing on interesting topics such as the history of computational law, UNCITRAL e-commerce texts on blockchain and smart contracts, topics concerning blockchain law, policy and regulation, demystifying smart contracts and law of new technologies and business models in the global context.
The finalised details on the schedule and speakers will be available soon.
So far, the list of our confirmed speakers and their draft topics are as follows:
- Prof. Eliza Mik of Singapore Management University – Demystifying Smart Contracts
- Dr. Yu Yinghui of Singapore University of Social Sciences – Blockchain 101: History, Limitations, Outlook
