The Future of Research is 'decentral' - but what does this actually mean?

The first international conference on the liberation of not only research data and publications, but the whole scientific process. Ideally, it will reestablish the trust in research results, solve aspects of the reproducibility crisis.

Blockchain - the Trust and Value Chain

The Blockchain revolution will greatly affect how research money is distributed and the value flow within the network. There can be competing research incentivation structures, with little media breaches so to free resources that can be spend on scientific inguinity instead of empty conduct. It is really about, building the new (open) science ecosystem. A science ecosystem without artificially constraining business models and legacy, overhead creating bureaucratic structures.

Building and structuring the Open Science Ecosystem now

More then 30 projects worldwide are working on the implementation of Blockchain for Research and now is the time to steer the community into the right directions, so to prevent walled-gardens and silos over data and to encourage a healthy competition over accessible UIs, freeing business models, effective work flows, token economies, etc.. Problems have to be solved, standards have to be defined, etc. How do we manage identities, certificates, how do we adopt the current legal system? What is actually 'Blockchain' in research?

To onboard the whole Research Community

After a series of early meetups and unconferences, this conference onboards the whole research community. The target group includes not only those that were traditionally interested in science communication and online tech, but all ranging from trusted research hardware producers, data brokers, blockchain developers, IP laywers, science funders, blockchain techies with interest in research, science culture and economists, game theoretists as well as scientists with an interest in research motivation and incentivation.

From the Community with the Community - it will be huge

It is organized by the vivid community and BFS Blockchain for Science GmbH. More than 120 (as of 10/15) scientists, researchers, publishers, consultants, investors, lawyers, trailblazers, developers, founders, techies, politicans, liberians and policy makers are coming to learn, teach, discuss and network. People from Korea, Australia, Singapore, North America, Turkey, Europe are gathering to dicuss the Open Science Ecosystem of the future. More than 10 Blockchain for Science projects will be present.

Associated Hackathon

DoraHacks is a global hackathon organizer and hacker organization founded in 2014, with support from Open Wisdom Lab at Tsinghua University/Bejing, China. Since its foundation, DoraHacks has organized 100+ hackathons around the globe, witnessed the birth of 3000+ projects and connected 300000+ hackers.

DoraHacks' mission is to connect the most talented hackers around the world to solve the greatest problems we face in different industries (AI, Blockchain, Commercial Space engineering, quantum computing etc). Utilize the most sophisticated technology to develop the most intense brainstorms, and deploy a convincing work to solve the most updated and critical problems in different industries.

On Nov.3rd-4th, DoraHacks will bring to the world "Dapp Dev&Crypto Game Hack" in Berlin. SIGN UP HERE. The winners of the Blockchain For Science track are invited to present their project on the Blockchain For Science CON open mic session Tuesday morning (6th of November).

James Littlejohn will guide the science track of the hackathon.
