“There has been an impressive amount of market evolution, technology development and innovation in the two plus years since we last held an in-person Hyperledger Global Forum,” said Daniela Barbosa, Executive Director, Hyperledger Foundation, and General Manager Blockchain, Healthcare and Identity at the Linux Foundation. “Our community has been a driving force in advancing blockchain for business and building the open source foundation for an increasingly decentralized world. This year’s event will be more than just an opportunity to reconnect, share successes, bring new ideas to the table and plan next steps. It will also be a celebration of the power of community to build better together.”

Inclusive agenda, inclusive community

HGF is the largest annual gathering of the Hyperledger community. It draws attendees from academia, governments, nonprofits and start-ups as well as major technology and end user companies from around the world. Hyperledger Foundation aims to create an event that is both valuable and welcoming to all. Some of the key ways the Hyperledger team and community have worked together to give HGF broad appeal and access, in keeping with an “All are Welcome” ethos, include:

  • Community-led Program Committee – To ensure a compelling content agenda that aligns with top-of-mind issues for the community, Hyperledger Foundation turned the selection process over to a community-led Program Committee.
  • Community Fair – A new addition to the “hallway track” of the conference, the Community Fair will be a dedicated space for connecting with leaders from across the Hyperledger Special Interest Groups, Working Groups and Regional Chapters. The goal is to make it easier for community members to make valuable connections and find people and resources that align with their interests and needs, regardless of where they are in their enterprise blockchain journey.
  • Diversity scholarships – With the assistance of DTTC, Hyperledger Foundation is also providing scholarships to 25 students, researchers, independent contributors and government or non-profit employees from as far as BoliviaEl SalvadorIndia and Sénégal to ensure they can attend HGF.
  • Free child care – To make HGF more accessible to parents of young children, Hyperledger Foundation will provide free child care during all three days of the conference sessions.
  • Commitment to health and safety – To enter HGF, attendees must show proof of being fully vaccinated or of a negative COVID test taken within 24 hours of presenting the results at the event. In addition, masks will be required inside the conference center.
  • Focus on community connections – Hyperledger Foundation is hosting this as an in-person event to facilitate critical community connections. There will be an emphasis on providing attendees non-stop opportunities for knowledge sharing, collaboration and networking, including a night of celebration at the historic Guinness Storehouse.
