Electromagnetic Field 2014
Thank you for coming to EMF 2014. Please do the following:
Welcome to the official wiki for EMF 2014!
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.
In the summer of 2012 we gathered hundreds of people in a field outside Milton Keynes 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 arranged a 380-megabit internet connection, reliable WiFi, and a bar stocked with real ale.
Now we're back in 2014 for the next edition: Electromagnetic Field 2014 will take place on the 29-31st of August in Newton Longville, near Milton Keynes!
TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE: https://www.emfcamp.org/tickets/choose
If you're interested in giving a talk or running a workshop, the Call for Participation is now open.
This wiki is a living, evolving site that anyone can help edit and improve. We're still in the early days, so be sure to check back for more detailed and firm information in the run-up to the event.
Only 147 days until EMF2014! (YES, this is an AWESOME LIVE COUNTDOWN to the AWESOME!)
I want to help!
EMF is entirely organised and run by a dedicated team of volunteers. We're looking for people to help with everything from power and networking to driving vans and running the bar.
Current status: A date and location have been picked (29-31st of August in Newton Longville, near Milton Keynes), equipment is being booked, and people are being organised.
The best thing you can do to help us right now, is to buy your ticket as early as possible.
If you're interested in helping make EMF happen, please make sure the volunteer box is selected when purchasing your EMF ticket. We will also be taking volunteer sign ups during the festival. Further details about volunteering at EMF will become available in due course, but in the meantime you can join the organisation mailing list and add your name to the Volunteering page. For more planning check out the Timeline for 2014.
At each EMF event we try and 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. Information about past Badges including TiLDA, SiNE and our next badge can be found here.
