Barcamb 2 has just been announced. This is a bar camp that is hosted by the Sanger institute in Cambridge with a focus on technologies related to science. Last year’s was a blast, and you can read a writeup of that event. The organisers have set up a Meetup Page where you can sign up for the meeting, and a Barcamb Wiki describing the event. If you have a chance to make it you should definitely try to get along.
