please get in touch sooner, rather than later. ****

A social is planned for the Saturday evening and details of

There is also the EMF Camp in July (which is actual camping unlike the OSHW camp).

Electromagnetic Field is a UK camping festival for those with an inquisitive mind or an interest in making things. It will be held from July 23rd–26th 2020 at Eastnor Castle Deer Park, Ledbury.

We’re looking for talks, performances, and workshops for all ages. We’re especially keen to hear from people with different backgrounds than you’d expect to find at a technology conference.

At previous events we’ve heard about everything from genetic modification to electronics, blacksmithing to high-energy physics, reverse engineering to lock picking, computer security to crocheting, and quadcopters to brewing. If you’re enthusiastic about it, we are too! You don’t need to consider yourself a professional or an expert to present.
