The Crypto Valley Association has announced new speakers for this year’s Crypto Valley Conference, taking place from 24-26th June 2019, in association with the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. Following the preliminary release of the speaker list, which includes representatives from IBM, the EU Commission, the World Trade Organization (WTO) and Dfinity, the Conference has revealed that speakers from Sovrin, Parity, Brave, Kyber Network, SIX Digital Exchange, Swiss Federal Department of Finance, Polkadot, Stellar, and Binance will also take to the stage.
Daniel Haudenschild, President of the Crypto Valley Association, said: “It is with great excitement and anticipation that we are including further industry leaders to our speaker and partner lists for this year’s conference. The high quality of attendees and presenters is testament to the innovative projects we host and rigorous academic standards we uphold each year — in the academia track this year, only 26% of research papers submitted have been accepted to present.”
In addition to a new speaker list, new partnerships have been revealed with Microsoft, BitcoinSuisse, Luxoft, and ConsenSys, among others. With an agenda spread out over three days, the conference will bring together leading scholars, researchers, developers, CEO's, CTO's, lawyers and government officials to discuss the latest advances within the blockchain and crypto landscape. Over 100 speakers will engage with a wide range of themes, including cryptoeconomics, regulation and governance, supply chain, IoT & shared data, smart contract security, micropayments, identity management, and consensus protocols.
Dr. Alexander Denzler, of Lucerne School of Applied Sciences and Arts, said: “The Crypto Valley Conference is an exciting showcase of the finest research and scholarship in blockchain and cryptocurrency. 2019 will be no different to last year where we hosted some of the brightest and best who study and work in blockchain in a unique environment, endorsed by the IEEE.”
Following the first day of the conference on Monday, a graduation ceremony will take place for the 12 blockchain startups that were selected to join the CVVC 10-week incubation program in April of this year. Tickets to the event are available here.
The Crypto Valley Conference, the Swiss Blockchain Hackathon and the SICTIC Swiss Blockchain Investor Day will figure into the wider set of events during Crypto Valley Week from 21-26 June, along with a special Bitcoin Association Meetup and CVLabs Incubator and Community Party planned, as well as a range of other happenings in the area.
