Call for Speakers

Thank you for your interest to become a speaker at the EIC 2018's Blockchain ID Innovation Night

The Blockchain ID Innovation Night is an informal gathering that consists of a series of 10 minute talks followed by discussions.

Talks should be inspiring, surprising, innovative.

They can be with or without slides and should cover one of the following topics:

  • Introduce or describe a project related to DID management, implementation or application or all of it
  • Propose a new or describe an existing standard or any work on an abstraction layer that provides interoperability above the different DID projects
  • Anything related to SSI Authentication and Identity Verification: Protocols, Processes, Claims exchange
  • Blockchain Consent Management & Link Contracts
  • DID & Privacy

There will be 10 Innovation Night talks with discussions in between and an open end discussion after the talks. We will decide on each proposal in a first-come-first serve mode. This call will be closed after all 10 slots are taken.
