Welcome to Infocamp

 

InfoCamp is a hybrid unconference that blends the egalitarian, community-driven basis of barcamps and other unconferences with some more conventional conference structures. Students, professionals, entrepreneurs and hobbyists from the user-centered information community are encouraged to come together for this weekend of presentations and conversations. The bulk of the content is produced by the attendees in the form of presentations, panels, product demos and roundtables. InfoCamp is all about the serendipity that happens when connecting open-minded people with new ideas.

Format

Format

InfoCamp has no pre-determined session topics or presenters, other than the keynote and plenary sessions. You, the participants, create and lead the sessions. You determine the topic and format of your session, sign up for a time slot, and pitch your session idea to the group. The schedule will be created as we go. The purpose of this format is to encourage collaboration, interaction, discussion, and real-time innovation.
