Consensus — loosely defined as global agreement on the state of a decentralised network across its mutually untrusting participants — has been at the heart of decentralised systems ever since the inception of Nakamoto’s Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus. At the same time, its scalability remains the Achilles' heel of decentralised systems.

The goal of this event is to introduce Protocol Labs Research's newly formed ConsensusLab to its future partners and to establish a workshop-style venue to bootstrap scientific exchange across a wider community of shared interests. We invite contributions from current and prospective collaborators, as well as from all researchers in the field.

The full recordings of the workshop are now linked from the programme and available in this YouTube playlist!
