We’re pleased to announce that we are silver sponsors of this year’s Electromagnetic Field festival.  As in previous years, we will also continue to support the event with free transit.  EMF is a long weekend camping in a field where people who are really very interested in things will tell you about the things that really interest them. There’s talks, demos, art installations and workshops on all kinds of creative things. In addition to camping, everyone gets power and high speed internet to their tent. Rumour has it there is also a bar.

Previous years have had an exceptionally wide variety of talks on a huge number of different subjects. The list of talks from the last festival in 2022 is long, but includes things as wild as:

  • Ship vs Oil Rig
  • The imitation game – using live data feeds from Network Rail to control a model railway
  • Building a home-made enigma machine

We’re not giving a talk this year as we didn’t come up with a good idea in time. For 2026 we’ve already rejected the following presentation titles :

  • I’ve got 99 problems and HEX ain’t one.
  • D. E. P. R. E. C. I. 8. The importance of correct accounting policies delivered through the medium of Aretha Franklin covers.
  • As a large language model I can’t assist with that. It’s illegal, unethical, and against my guidelines.

We’re looking forward to meeting up with lots of interesting people at EMF2024.
