Science Foo Camp

Nature, O'Reilly and Google are pleased to have hosted the third annual Science Foo Camp* August 8-10, 2008, Googleplex, Mountain View, California *Invitation only

Foo Camp is an informal conference format pioneered by O'Reilly, a leading publisher of books on information technology.

There is no predefined agenda, instead attendees collaboratively create one during the first evening of the event, 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) among technologists.

Nature is therefore delighted to have collaborated with Google and O'Reilly to organise the third annual Science Foo Camp, which was once again hosted at the Googleplex. About 200 leading scientists, technologists, writers and other thought-leaders gathered for a weekend of discussion, demonstration and debate.
