Workshop on Cloud Services for Synchronisation and Sharing

The next CS3 event will take place from 24 to 28 January 2022. The registration page is open and we welcome registrations for the free and educational conference.

The CS3 2022 – Cloud Storage Synchronisation and Sharing conference has been held annually since 2014. It gathers representatives from large public computer sites, universities, research institutions and some companies (*). Originally, it was to take place once again at ETH Zurich in person. Due to the pandemic, this year the online format has to be used again, which has proven itself in January 2021 thanks to the “” social networking platform.


The lecture by Prof. Adrian Perrig, Institute for Information Security at ETH Zurich, will be exciting. Prof. Perrig will report on SCION in the keynote session on 25.01.2022. See also the just published ETH News article “SCION secure internet enters everyday service”

Dr Yiannis Psaras. Psaras is a research associate at Protocol Labs and a member of the Resilient Networks Lab, where he works on identifying and addressing future challenges that the IPFS, libp2p and Filecoin protocols will face.

Frank Karlitschek is a free software developer, entrepreneur and privacy activist. He founded the Nextcloud and ownCloud projects and has been involved in several other free software projects. This keynote will explain the details of the antitrust complaint to the European Commission about OneDrive.
