Decentralised Web Symposium - Technology for a Decent Web
Vienna University of Economics and Business
January 17, 2020

Over the last few years the notion of a decentralised Web has emerged: where individuals and organisations are empowered to control and manage their digital assets. We are in the process of establishing an interdisciplinary network of researchers to have a common dialogue on the technical issues related to this decentralised Web and how these issues relate to social, economic, and policy aspects. The Decent(ralised) Web Symposium will serve as the initialisation of our common activities. As such we would like to invite researchers with an interest in technologies associated with our concept. In particular envisage the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics being covered:

  *   Decentralised infrastructures
  *   Multi-agent systems
  *   Collective intelligence
  *   Blockchains and the Web
  *   Cyber Physical Social Systems
  *   Impact on
     *   Society
     *   Economics
     *   Privacy

The symposium will comprise keynotes and talks from prominent invited speakers, and will also feature a time slot for 10-12 lightning talks to allow participants to share their vision, challenges and/or current work. If you are interested in giving a lightning talk, please submit title and abstract of your proposal using this form (https://adecentweb.org/events/decentralised-web-symposium/) before 18th December 2019 for review by the organising committee. We will send notifications of decisions on 20th December 2019.
