The focus is on necessary concepts and infrastructure to enable (Byzantine) fault tolerance, but can also include the operation of such systems. Selected areas in the field are given by the following, not necessarily complete, list:

After each presentation there will be time for discussions. The event is planned from noon to noon so that there is time to arrive and depart on the same days. In the evening there will be a social event in form of a joint dinner.
