Based on some encouragement from friends as well as my desire to find more time again to hang out at community events, I decided to attend Electromagnetic Field 2016 held in Guildford, UK from August 5th through 7th.
As I typically don't like just attending an event without contributing to it in some form, I submitted a couple of talks / workshops, all of which were accepted:
An overview talk about the Osmocom project
A Workshop on running your own cellular network using OpenBSC and related Osmocom software
A Workshop on tracing (U)SIM card communication using Osmocom SIMtrace
I believe the detailed schedule is still in the works, as I haven't yet been able to find any on the event website.
Looking forward to having a great time at EMF 2016. After attending Dutch and German hacker camps for almost 20 years, let's see how the Brits go about it!
