Digital Assets and Private International Law


From 11 to 12 April 2024, a conference on "Digital Assets and Private International Law" will be held at the University of Vienna.


Digital assets, such as cryptocurrencies, stablecoins and other tokens, have become important as objects of investment and trade. They are recorded on the blockchain, an electronic ledger held in identical form on servers (nodes) all over the world. Therefore, the determination of the governing law presents particular challenges. This conference will explore whether Private International Law methodology can be successfully applied to digital assets or whether it needs to be changed in light of the 'blockchain revolution'.


Date: 11 and 12 April 2024


Place: Juridicum. Schottenbastei 10-16, A-1010 Vienna, roof top floor



The conference will take place in a hybrid format. Speakers and participants will meet in the Juridicum. The proceedings will be streamed simultaneously online. Registration (both for physical attendance and online participation) can be made until 6 April 2024 by email at the following address: Participation is free but registration compulsory.
