Electromagnetic Field 2018
Electromagnetic Field (EMF) is a non-profit UK camping festival for those with an inquisitive mind or an interest in making things: hackers, geeks, scientists, engineers, artists, and crafters.
Electromagnetic Field 2018 will take place between Friday 31st August and Sunday 2nd September 2018 in Eastnor Castle Deer Park in Herefordshire. Just like in 2012, 2014 and 2016, hundreds of people will gather in a field for three days of talks and workshops covering everything from genetic modification to electronics, blacksmithing to high-energy physics, reverse engineering to lock picking, computer security to crocheting, and quadcopters to beer brewing.
To help matters along, we will arrange a high-speed internet connection, reliable WiFi, and a bar stocked with real ale.
To get an idea what EMF 2016 was like, you can view the list of talks, workshops and performances and see recordings of a number of them on our Youtube channel. If you are inspired by the past content, please consider giving a talk yourself or running a workshop this year!
The campsite contains a number of villages, where those with something in common can camp together. This something in common could be anything, from being members of the same Hackspace, through an interest in high altitude ballooning, to a love of everything Dutch. If there isn't a village for your interest, then why not create one! Many villages run their own talks, workshops or other events.
At each EMF event we give our attendees a great camp badge. Not just a "Hello my name is" sticker, but a nice fun piece of technology that they can take away and use after the event. At the last event, attendees received a TiLDA Mkπ. Information about past badges including TiLDA, SiNE and our next badge can be found here.
