InfoCamp Berkeley 2013
Saturday, March 16, 2013, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
InfoCamp Berkeley is an unconference for the information community.
It features an egalitarian, community-driven format in which most presentations are designed and delivered by participants. And it’s a lot of fun! InfoCamp Berkeley is for anyone interested in user experience, information architecture, interaction design, service design, information management, information design, librarianship, online search, informatics, and related fields.
There are no pre-determined session topics or presenters, other than a keynote session. You, the participants, create and lead most of the sessions! You determine the topic and format of your session, and pitch your session idea to the group, and sign up for a time slot. The exact schedule will be created as we go.
The purpose of this format is to encourage collaboration, interaction, discussion, and real-time innovation. The benefits of this format include the immediacy of the topics – the sessions didn’t have to be submitted months ahead of time – and the fun, exciting (and a bit chaotic) feeling of being part of an event that’s being led by everyone.
