Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies Security School

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the "2019 International Summer School on "Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies Security" (BCS) that will take place at the University of Padua, Italy from June 24th to June 28th, 2019.

The school aims at bringing together members from the international security research community to debate contemporary issues in the area of privacy and security of blockchain technology and designing new cryptocurrencies with better security guarantees. The school consists of lectures given by world-leading researchers in this area (see the list of our prestigious speakers below) and of a PhD forum.

BCS school is organized by the SPRITZ Security and Privacy Research Group of University of Padua. The University of Padua is a long tradition University (among the earliest Universities of the world, founded in 1222; hosted people like Galileo Galilei and Nicolaus Copernicus). A recent national assessment set the University of Padua as the highest ranking among leading Italian Universities for the quality of its research results.
