A Science Unconference in Cambridge

20 21 April 2012

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Science Barcamp Cambridge (SciBarCamb) is a gathering of scientists, publishers, technologists, and others with an interest in science. The goal of the event is to create connections between people who have a lot in common, but don't work in the same field and may not meet each other otherwise.

SciBarCamp meetings have been held since 2008 in the US, Canada, Austria, and right here in Cambridge. They have attracted researchers, science communicators, entrepreneurs, artists, media professionals, librarians and scientific publishers. To find out more, read this report of the very first SciBarCamp event in Toronto, check out some photos of last year's SciBarCamb, or read what people said about us on Twitter.

Unlike regular conferences, SciBarCamb does not have a predefined programme. It is an “unconference” - an event where the participants fill the schedule on the opening night, with topics they want to discuss and talks they want to present. All attendees are encouraged to present, give a demo, or otherwise participate.

This year, we're meeting on the evening of April 20th at Baroosh from 7pm, and all day on April 21st at the Cambridge Union Society. We hope you can join us.
