3 options at this point (other suggestions?)

1. UnConference (Similar to UX unconf)

This is 10 to 15 short presentations with unstructured discussions. Each pres should be 15-20 minutes with the next 10-15 minutes for questions

**** OR ****

2. More discussion Unconference

This is 8 to 10 presentations with unstructured discussions after. Each pres should be 20-30 minutes with the next 15-25 minutes for more in depth discussions and potential actions

3. More focused Unconference [Least popular at this point]

5-7 30 minute presentations with less discussion.

Once all are complete we break up into smaller teams to discuss presentation content in detail in breakout rooms (if available, TBD). There may be a second phase where people can swap their break out for the last hour or so.

Further Discussion

About the Smart Contract Systems Security category
Proposed gathering of the Security community

I know the guys at Chainshot would be very keen to attend here, please consider them. E-mail is


IMO the first option of the UnConference sounds better but both options can be good.


@jpitts Can we create polls?


Yes that’s possible by clicking on options in the toolbar and then build poll.

  • Unconference
  • Focused Unconference
  • Other

0 voters




These options don’t match the OC. Maybe it’s been edited?

I’m in favor of more discussion, fewer talks.
Talks which share experiences and learning, which then encourage follow up conversation are probably best.


How do we best facilitate that?

I was thinking about having talks planned like you stated, but maybe another idea would be to do a more dynamic mapping process EIP0-style of figuring out all the angles of what an audit should be and what is in scope vs. out of scope of an audit? Just have a really good philosophical discussion about it, at least for part of the time.



Yeah I think it was edited but I can’t edit the poll…


I’m 100% going as well. :smiley: as I’m sure are other people from Diligence. Happy to help with logistics and content.


Awesome! Can you edit the wiki above to add your attendance?

Someone was having problems yesterday. We may need a better mechanism for the RSVP list


I would love to participate in this event. Is it ok to simply invite myself by adding me to the list in the wiki?


It seems new users can’t edit the wiki post.

I’ll be in attendance as will several of my coworkers: Ryan Stortz (Trail of Bits)


Your name has been added. Looking forward to it.


Your name has been added. Great to have you guys. Can you give me the names of the other attendees?
