Electromagnetic Field 2016 - EMF Camp

Electromagnetic Field [1] is a UK camping festival for those with an inquisitive mind or an interest in making things: hackers, artists, geeks, crafters, scientists, and engineers.

This year's badges were amazing! If you want to start hacking your badge, go to this link:
I actually had the opportunity to give a talk on the myths and truths when it comes to hacking airplanes. Thank you all for coming to my talk! The talk was recorded and streamed live at the same time. Soon, the video will be available on EMFcamp's youtube channel if you would like to watch.

This year the event took place between Fri 5th - Sun 7th Aug 2016. The organisers found a really nice location outside Guildford. It is an awesome camping site with power to your tent (if you remembered to bring an extension) and Internet access. Tickets are approximately £120 and if you are thinking of driving down, you need to purchase in advance a parking ticket. If you have a motor-home, you are also welcome. 

EMFcamp welcomes everyone, supports diversity and does not tolerate misconduct. So, pack your tent, some warm clothes, a couple bottles of/for water, a torch, your favourite drinks and you are all set. I suggest you get earplugs as well, especially if it is windy, you wont be able to sleep. 

Plenty of presentations to watch, a few canteens with drinks and food, and many different workshops. Many different villages [2] and a lot of fun stuff to do all day long! Except from attending interesting talks and workshops, from hacking stuff, making stuff, creating music through algorithms, practising your soldering skills, lock-picking, talking to people around the world through radio broadcast, and play fire ping pong, you can also enjoy the day with all sort of people, make new friends while have a a cold drink and warm food.

There is also a kids area as well where you can let them play from 10:00 am until 20:00 pm and overseen by professional carers. 
Pick your favourite activity as you go along or plan your day in advance by looking at the schedule on the website.
