Call for Presentations/Call for Workshops

Monero Konferenco 2022 welcomes submissions for its two-day event in Lisbon, June 2022.

This second edition of the Monero Konferenco strives to provide the same high-quality content as last year’s edition in Denver, bringing together experts and enthusiasts of cryptocurrency and privacy to present state-of-the-art research in both fields.

This year’s Konferenco will group content under the following four frames, though proposals may fit into these categories broadly if otherwise relevant as they are not to be seen as overly prescriptive:

  1. Cryptography
  2. Security
  3. Networks
  4. Governance

The above frames allow for the inclusion of a range of topics, but we encourage submissions focused specifically on applications relevant to the Monero protocol, technologies, platform, ecosystem and community. We are also very keen to schedule presentations concerned with the broader field of cryptocurrency, with preference given to submissions focused on unique privacy-preserving cryptographic methods, novel implementations of zero-knowledge cryptographic schemes, innovative privacy-enhancing technologies and/or platforms, as well as content focused on constructs such as decentralisation, politics, philosophy, the environment, and cryptocurrency legal and regulatory frameworks.

Along with our call for presentations we welcome workshop ideas, giving preference to proposals focused on spreading knowledge and education on cryptocurrency related hardware and/or privacy enhancing applications and platforms.

There will be funds available for speakers and workshop providers to cover travel and accommodation costs and will be granted on a ‘needs basis.’

Submissions will be blind reviewed by a selection committee, the names of which appear below.
