The focus of the event is on intentional communities, although workshops sometimes cover a broader array of topics in cooperative and alternative lifestyles, economics, and organizing. If the workshop is not specific to intentional communities the presenter will be expected to address the topic in relation to intentional communities.
The conference site is rustic and mostly outdoors. There is limited electrical access. Presentations requiring projectors or amplified sound can be accommodated if requested in advance.
Presenters are encouraged to participate in the whole weekend. Registration fees are waived and camping is the standard accommodation; indoor accommodations are available for a fee.
