Students interested in participating in the International Blockchain School must be enrolled as PhD or master students in a computer science, information systems, engineering or other cognate programs at a university.
For this edition of the Blockchain School, we will establish three different tracks for the case work:
- Explorer Track: In this track, technical issues in existing Blockchain / DLT systems are discussed and potential solutions are developed. This is a makeathon, where not necessarily code is written, but where potential solutions are developed conceptually.
- Exploiter Track: In this track, we will offer the opportunity for students with prior experience around blockchain prototyping to work with organisations which have already prototypes developed. The intention is to further improve demonstrators, or design them anew, to meet the more advanced requirements and level of know-how among participating students as well as organisations.
- Tech Track: students will work together with case organisations from industry and public sector on developing blockchain prototypes in a 24 hours hackathon.
PhD students receive ECTS points, while master students can seek recognition of their work during the International Blockchain School in form of special projects at the universities and thus should consult their local universities. All students will receive a certificate of participation. ECTS points are only granted to PhD students who hand in a report after the end of the International Blockchain School.
