In keeping with the collaborative philosophy that spawned the likes of Wikipedia and which, at a surface level at least, underpins social software innovations, the SCL Conference will aim to pool ideas and provides a forum to achieve this. In place of the standard lecture format, the Conference features hands-on, structured panel sessions. Each panel session features a short presentation by one or two keynote speakers setting out the latest thinking on their subject.
