International two-day conference on DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations)
February 6-7, 2024
DAO UTokyo is an invitation-only two-day conference that will bring together practitioners, policymakers, and academics to engage in conversation regarding the research, legal, and policy considerations of DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations) as well as the greater Web3 space in the Asia-Pacific. DAO UTokyo is modeled after the 2023 DAO Harvard Summit and co-hosted by some of the same organizers.
- Day 1: Policy Focus. Day 1 will feature lightning talks and short panels by participants from a range of institutions to discuss Web3 policy efforts, successes, and challenges throughout the Asia-Pacific.
- Day 2: Research Focus. Day 2 will feature lightning talks and short panels on the role that organizations such as cooperatives, open-source communities, and DAOs are playing in enabling equitable ownership, in addition to the hurdles (legal and otherwise) they are facing. Talks on non-DAO Web3 research are also welcome.

Attendees have the opportunity to submit English-language papers of up to 10,000 words on their topic of choice related to the theme of Web3’s Evolution: DAOs, Other Innovations and Adjacent Technologies for publication in the Stanford Journal of Blockchain Law & Policy.
