Science Foo Camp* Invitation only
21-23 June 2013

* Invitation only

Digital Science is delighted to be collaborating with Google, O'Reilly Media and Nature to organise the eighth annual Science Foo Camp ("Sci Foo" for short). Each year, the event brings together between 200 and 300 leading scientists, technologists, writers and other thought-leaders at the Googleplex for a weekend of unbridled discussion, demonstration and debate.

Sci Foo in brief

Foo Camp is an informal conference format pioneered by O'Reilly Media, a leading book publisher and event organiser in the field of information technology. There is no predefined agenda, instead attendees collaboratively create one from start to finish the first evening, with little if any boundaries to what can be discussed. Since the first O'Reilly Foo Camp in 2003, these events have become legendary and much imitated, leading to the first Science Foo Camp in the summer of 2006.
