Nature is delighted to be collaborating again with Google and O'Reilly Media to organise the fifth annual Science Foo Camp (SciFoo). About 200 leading scientists, technologists, writers and other thought-leaders will gather once more at the Googleplex for a weekend of discussion, demonstration and debate.
Foo Camp is an informal conference format pioneered by O'Reilly Media, a leading book publisher and event organiser in the field of information technology. There is no predefined agenda, instead attendees collaboratively create one during the first evening, having shared ideas in advance through a wiki. Since the first O'Reilly Foo Camp in 2003, these events have become legendary and much imitated. (Invitation only)
