Schedule details:

The MEV Research-athon is yet another form social experiment for collaborative research. We invite [re]searchers, protocol designers, data scientists from different organizations that are tackling a common problem space, to hack on some shared challenges.

Researchers can form “Special Purpose Vessels” - flash organizations of 3-5 researchers that team up based on interest in a particular challenge, to tackle specific research problems in an irl workshop.

To overcome the Babel Tower in collaboration, much of the day will be spent on calibration of knowledge via curated talks. Each of the talk should make references to prior speaker’s framework, language and mental models to maintain consistency.

By the end of the workshop, each of the teams should present their research question and methodologies similar to a research proposal for FRP, or design specifications, prototypes, etc…

Ideally, the research-athon may inspire participants to continue after the irl workshop, and turn the ideas and prototypes into POCs, blogposts, papers or future presentation.

For this particular mev [re]searchathon, the teams may be invited to present at our joint virtual event with ETHGlobal - Scaling Ethereum: 2023 (more details to come).
