CommPRO Editorial Staff
The rapidly expanding fields of blockchain and cryptocurrencies will be examined in depth by policymakers, industry executives, and academic leaders during an international, two-day symposium at George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government.
GBA’s Fall 2019 Symposium: The Future of Money, Governance, and the Law will be hosted by the Government Blockchain Association, the Criminal Investigations and Network Analysis Center (a Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence), and the Schar School.
Speakers and panelists will explore the latest developments in financial systems, cybersecurity, intelligence, energy, and environment, as well as tackle the policy issues that confront governments around the globe, including regulation, competitiveness, national interests, local governance, healthcare, taxation, and law enforcement.
“The Schar School is an ideal venue to host this symposium—interdisciplinary in nature and jointly organized with GBA and CINA,” said Maurice Kugler, professor of public policy at the Schar School. “The sessions will be dynamic and driven by synergies by bringing together thought leaders across all disciplines—including academic researchers, private investors, international organization management, and government officials.”
The conference will include an expansive exhibit of new blockchain technologies that will be demonstrated by award-winning innovators.
