MARBLE 2020

MARBLE 2020

 

MARBLE is a conference series which aims to provide a high-profile platform for mathematicians, computer scientists and economists from both academia and industry to present latest advances and innovations in key theories and models of blockchain. The first edition of the conference was held in Santorini in May 2019.

Due to COVID-19 this year’s conference will run online as a free event, returning to a paid event to be held in Portugal in June 2021. The programme for this year has been slightly reduced, consisting of presentations of peer-reviewed research papers only. Invited keynotes and tutorials for MARBLE 2020 will be carried over to MARBLE 2021.
