The scope is to define concepts regarding smart contracts and to produce material to describe the various aspects and meanings, trying to come up to standards or good practices. The audience for smart contracts is large and spans from researchers, developers, businessmen, decision makers, policy makers, law makers, software users, citizens to governments, banks, financial institutions, insurance providers, etc
Two main research topics and separation of interests are:
Models of and mechanism for computation
Generation of smart contracts from existing artifacts (natural language, business process, state machines, non smart-contract code)
Data structures and state
Tooling and compilers for existing virtual machines
Design Patterns for Smart Contracts
Upgradeability of smart contracts
Please see Extended Scope for an extended version of Technology and Law topics.
