CES’20 was presented in cooperation with USENIX, the advancing computing systems association. We gratefully acknowledge sponsorship from the Web3 Foundation, Calibra and Cooley Law. Huge thanks to the MIT Bitcoin Club for hosting us alongside the 7th annual MIT Bitcoin Expo this year! Special thanks also to Platform design agency for our lovely new visual identity - more on that soon.

Presentation videos are on YouTube and full texts of papers are linked on the conference program.

  • Our first journal Call for Papers is now open! Please help us spread the world and consider it as a venue for your work.

  • We are seeking expressions of interest to host our flagship peer reviewed conference in Europe or Asia in 2021. Call for Hosts is here.

  • Our editors Andrew, Neha and Wassim wrote this letter a few weeks ago giving some background and context to the Cryptoeconomic Systems journey so far.

  • Our prototype of the first journal output will soon be ready for your perusal! Issue 0 is intended will be an open experiment in reformulating the traditional publication medium for our accelerating times.

Best wishes,

March 7 & 8 ::: Cryptoeconomic Systems '20 ::: MIT ::: Program & Ticketing Details

Our first peer reviewed conference program is confirmed & combined tickets with the MIT Bitcoin Expo are now on sale!

Happy 2020 to you! We hope the start of the year has been fruitful and productive.

Winter usually means quieter periods of activity, but this has not been the case at Cryptoeconomic Systems HQ! After our inaugurual Summit in October 2019, our first Call for Papers closed in mid-November after a short extension to accommodate greatly increased interest following our first CryptoEconSys event. Together with our 42-member Program Committee we then commenced a pioneering experiment into interdisciplinary peer review.

Based on the feedback of reviewers and ensuing discussions with the editorial team, we selected 26 papers from 80 submissions for CES ‘20. We employed 4 outcome types with different pathways to publishing in the journal which we’ll unpack in greater detail alongside the conference program shortly. The conference is co-located with the 7th annual MIT Bitcoin Expo on the MIT campus 7 & 8 March. Early Bird tickets are already on sale and very inexpensive, so we hope to see you there!
