CASA Summer School

The Cluster of Excellence CASA is organizing its Summer School on Blockchain Security in Bochum from June 20 to 23, 2022. All PhD students and advanced master students from the field of IT security are cordially invited to apply. The aim of the Summer School is to provide an attractive platform for young researchers with exciting lectures on the topic and a collaborative exchange within the community.

Around the Program

Training and Exchange With Young Researchers

The Summer School offers a multifaceted program around the topic of blockchain technology for four days. It addresses a highly relevant topic that is attracting a great deal of attention, not only in the scientific community but also beyond. A number of researchers and practitioners speculate that blockchains can change the way we see a number of online applications today. Although it is still early to tell, it is expected that the blockchain will stimulate considerable discussions with respect to decentralized deployments and might positively impact the digital experience of many individuals around the globe.

Exciting Program With Excellent Speakers

In this summer school, we overview and analyze the security and privacy provisions of popular blockchain platforms, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. Besides analyzing the security of the network and consensus layers in those platforms, we will also thoroughly discuss the security of smart contracts in the Ethereum platform.
