We are one the of the largest BarCamps for UX Professionals with 600+ active participants from all over the world and we usually meet in Berlin once a year.
The event is held since 2009, planned by a team of local UX enthusiasts and run during the weekend by all our participants.
As a BarCamp we follow the international Rules of BarCamp which we like to share and remind our participants of. Please remember we are big but still a BarCamp at heart, not a commercial conference.
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 talk, discussions, and workshops 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 hold a session, or help with one, or otherwise volunteer or 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 session wall. The people present at the event will select the session they want to see.
Presenters are encouraged to make 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.

The 45-minute sessions are at the core of every BarCamp and provide ample time for presenting a short talk, discussing new ideas or sharing case studies followed up by an open discussion.
Every UXcamp Europe participant is strongly encouraged to facilitate a session on his/her own or as a small team.
If you have never held a session before or want to polish your presentation and pitching skills we have prepared some tips for a great session.
Rather than our usual venue at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin we will meet online this year.
