Digital Science is delighted to collaborate again with Google, O’Reilly Media and Nature to organise the seventh annual Science Foo Camp (“Sci Foo” for short). Over 200 leading scientists, technologists, writers and other thought-leaders will gather once more at the Googleplex for a weekend of unbridled discussion, demonstration and debate.

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. For a glimpse of what Sci Foo is like, check out this video from our 2009 event. Stay tuned for more coverage.
