OggCamp is more than just a bunch of talks. Although the talks are, of course, awesome. It’s a whole weekend of fun.


OggCamp is an unconference, and it only happens because of its attendees. Alongside our scheduled track, we’ll have 2 tracks which will be decided on the day. This means we need you to come along and offer a talk about your project, hobby, experiences, or opinions. Anything related to Free Culture is welcome, including Free and Open Source Software, Creative Commons works, hardware hacking, or any collaborative activity.  Please check out the Talk Guidelines page ahead of the event for guidance about tone, content, and set-up.

Of course, speaking isn’t compulsory. If you only want to come along to enjoy the talks, exhibition and parties, you’re just as welcome!

We will have a system in place to manage the talks on the day. Slots will be 30 minutes long, and you can have a maximum of 2 slots (i.e. 1 hour) for your talk. If you need any help submitting your talk, our crew will be on hand to help. There will also be some sessions of shorter “lightning” talks.
