UXcamp Europe is a conference open to everyone with in interest in UserExperience Design. Year on year, we are joined by many different people from many different countries and with a variety of backgrounds resulting in a broad range of different manners.
The Rules of BarCamp
BarCamp is an ad-hoc unconference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees.
Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.
When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers.
When you leave, be prepared to share it with the world.
NO SPECTATORS, ONLY PARTICIPANTS
Attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one, or otherwise volunteer / contribute in some way to support the event.
All presentations are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall. The people present at the event will select the demos or presentations they want to see.
Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes/slides/audio/video of their presentations are published on the web for the benefit of all and those who can’t be present.
What is a BarCamp anyway?
BarCamps are open participatory events, the content of which is provided by the participants themselves.
For two days UXcamp Europe will host around 500 international UX professionals from such diverse disciplines as Information Architecture, (Web–)Development, Interaction & Visual Design, Service Design, Content Strategy, Psychology and Usability.
International: since 2010 UXcamp Europe saw a 50/50 ratio of German/international participants of which the majority came from Europe. We also welcomed guests from the USA, Brazil, Japan and India to Berlin so far.
The 45 minutes sessions provide ample time for presenting a short talk, demonstrating new ideas or technologies followed up by an open discussion. Every UXcamp participant is encouraged to facilitate a session on his/her own or as a small team.
Session topics typically include workshops, presentations, case studies, pop songs or open discussions related to User Experience, Interaction Design, Information Architecture, Service Design and similar subjects. Sessions at BarCamps usually are workshop-like and collaboration oriented. Since everyone is a (potential) speaker, the discussions tend to be intense yet always respectful.
Some sessions might even be completely unrelated to any of these topics – and since it’s a BarCamp that’s totally up to you!
