Electromagnetic Field 2016
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.
EMF Camp 2016 will take place on the 5-7th of August in Loseley Park, near Guildford. Just like in 2012 and the 2014, hundreds of people will be gathering 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 are arranging a high-speed internet connection, reliable WiFi, and a bar stocked with real ale.
There's only -1334 days until EMF2016! To help you get ready we are compiling a packing list, an FAQ, and some travel advice. To get an idea what EMF2016 will be like, you can view the list of talks and workshops from EMF2014 and see recordings of a number of them on our Youtube channel. If you are inspired by the past content, then why not run your own talk or workshop: these can be submitted through our call for participation.
The campsite will contain 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 will also be running 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 this event, attendees will receive a TiLDA Mkπ. Information about past Badges including TiLDA, SiNE and our next badge can be found here.
Time until EMF2016:
I want to help!
EMF is entirely organised and run by a dedicated team of volunteers. More details about volunteering will appear here soon.
