What is BIL?

BIL is a science and technology unconference. More information on the concept here: http://www.bilconference.com


Upcoming BIL's:

  • BIL2009 - Feb 7-8, 2009 in Long Beach, CA


Past BIL's:

  • BIL2008 - Mar 1-2, 2008 in Monterey, CA


Get Organized

If you would like to organize a BIL in your area, create a Wiki Page! Look at Past/Upcoming BIL's for ideas on how to get started.


Read the Organizing a BIL page for tips from other organizers (and if you've organized one, add your own tips).


There are no "rules" for organizing a BIL. We just ask that your event, if it uses the BIL name, conform to a few BIL guidelines:

  • Naming convention - BIL:location year. Year is usually left off if this is the first one in that location. Examples: BIL:UK 2009 and BIL:Tuscon. BIL year is reserved for the original BIL which follows TED (BIL2008 and BIL2009).
  • Wiki Pages - Try and contain all the "wiki action" for your event on one wiki page, with the same name as your event. If you need multiple pages, name them event page title to prevent confusion between events. Example: BIL2009Ideas
  • Free and open to all. We understand some BIL's will have limited space, but attendence should not be limited to certain people. Example: If there was a BIL:Texas A&M University limited to only A&M students, this is not a true BIL.
  • Share content with the world. Share photos from the event through sites like flickr, audio and video through youtube. Also, soon the BIL Conference website will be able to share content, so try and collect as much as possible at your event.
