Registration to Cyber Security Summer School Now Open
From 1st to 5th July 2019 the annual Cyber Security Summer School will take place in Voore Guesthouse, Estonia. The focus will be on blockchain technologies and its impact on digital transformation.
With experts from various sectors and establishments, Summer School will give a comprehensive overview of different aspects of blockchain technologies. There will be three different subtopics which also serve as the main discussion points for the summer school:
- legal and economic considerations using blockchain,
- applications for blockchain,
- blockchain and cryptography.
The Summer School is intended for PhD students and for young professionals, who already work with blockchain. Leading researchers organizing the Summer School are Dr. Dominique Unruh and Dr. Raimundas Matulevičius. Summer School will also welcome guest speakers from Australia, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, and Switzerland.
