5-6 NOV 2018
in NHOW Berlin

The 1st international Conference on Blockchain for Science, Research and Knowledge Creation

will be held on 5-6 November in NHOW Hotel Berlin.

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 to we adopt to 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 hugh

It is organized by one of the earliest trailblazer of Blockchain for Science PD Dr. Sönke Bartling (BFS Blockchain for Science GmbH) and Arnoud de Kemp with decades of experience in bringing newest science communication tech to the community (APE Conferences - digiprimo GmbH).
