Minerviad is a gathering of people who love knowledge and intellectual stimulation, taking place June 30 - July 2 (3 days) in Tel Aviv, Israel. Minerviad is an unconference which aims to bring smart people together to exchange ideas and form new connections. 3 days of unadulterated geek fun!
The program will be composed of short talks (up to 20 minutes talk + 20 minutes discussion), long talks, workshops and organized discussions, leaving time for socializing in the evening. Each participant is obliged to give at least 1 short talk! Depending on number of participants, there might be 2 parallel tracks.
Subjects may vary: science, technology, history, economics, my-plan-to-take-over-the-world, you name it... The talks will be accessible to non-specialist audience with good general knowledge.
The facilities for the event are kindly provided by the Centre for Science Education in Tel Aviv and are located in Pardes St. 7, Tel Aviv, Israel. Participants from far away (especially from abroad) will be provided with free accommodation in houses of volunteers.
