BFTW3: Why? When? Where?
Workshop on Theory and Practice of Byzantine Fault Tolerance

Affiliated with DISC 2009

September 22, 2009
Elche, Spain

The workshop gathers researchers from both theory and systems communities and aims at understanding why the impressive research activity in the area of Byzantine fault-tolerance is not yet instantiated in practice. Has the moment for a wide deployment of BFT systems arrived, and if so, where BFT systems should be deployed in the first place?


The workshop will consist of invited contributions. No published proceedings, the presentations may contain results that appeared or are going to appear elsewhere, work-in-progress reports, surveys and tutorials. A submission is expected to be a short (around two pages) abstract of the presentation.




BFTW3 is supported by Deutsche Telekom Laboratories.
