An unconference can be many things, but the defining characteristic is that it's driven by the participants. In this way, unconferences are great for sharing knowledge and fleshing out ideas.
For more detailed information about this event, please visit the 2011 Unconference website or call the CLRC offices at 315-446-5446.
You! Participants will spend the morning in "Lightning Talks", each speaking for 5 minutes about any aspect of the theme. You will then divide into "Birds of a Feather" sessions where you will discuss the aspects of the concept that most appeal to you. While we strongly encourage everyone to speak (if time permits) we do not require this for attendance. We will also scroll a Twitter feed where conference participants can post their thoughts, observations, praise, criticism, etc... So bring your laptops, your tablets, or your smart phones and prepare for a high-energy day!
For more detailed instructions on how to participate, go to the unconference website. Participants are not required to submit or use visuals, but if they would like to do so, instructions can be found here: http://www.clrc.org/cec/libcamp.php#002
