InfoCamp 2017

Saturday, March 18, 2017
9:00 am to 5:30 pm
South Hall, UC Berkeley

InfoCamp, in its 8th year, is a premier, student-run conference for the information community. Held on the UC Berkeley campus at the School of Information, the event draws over 150 professionals, students, and entrepreneurs across a wide range of sectors who work in roles in data science, UX design, product management, and software engineering. InfoCamp is a day-long event that features keynote speakers, panels, and an “unconference,” where attendees pitch and host their own sessions.

This year the theme is Hello Disruption!. This year’s event comes at critical moment - just two months after the new U.S. president will be inaugurated. Speakers and panels will focus on the following:

  • Information vs Misinformation: As seen in this year’s election, information and misinformation are both powerful tools when wielded effectively. This panel will look at the effects of information when harnessed correctly and when abused

  • Dynamo Disruptors: Who’s fighting the fight (and winning!) in industries hardest to disrupt? What have they learned along the way?

InfoCamp is intimate by design to allow for authentic community-building. Tickets have sold out in recent years. Purchase yours now!
