What is BarCamp Canberra?
BarCamp Canberra (www.barcampcanberra.org) is a free one-day

The event brings together professionals from a wide range of
disciplines to give adhoc presentations on topics such as
social innovation, Gov 2.0, web, technical development, science

The event is part of a global network of BarCamps, with over
800 having been held in over 350 cities around the world over
the last five years.
BarCamp Canberra is now in its 4th year and has generally
attracted 100-150 attendees throughout the event.
This year BarCamp Canberra has a brand new venue in the ANU's
College of Business and Economics, which will allow us to have
more attendees and up to three simultaneous streams.
As an unconference, BarCamp doesn't have set speakers or an
agenda. On the morning of the event attendees nominate to speak
and, usually, write their presentation name on post-it notes
and stick them to a schedule on butcher's paper.
Others attendees then choose which presentations they attend.
This bottom-up approach is what makes BarCamps unique, as
anyone can speak on any topic, allowing for wide-ranging
discussions and unique presentations.
BarCamp Canberra is a free event. Food and drinks are provided
on the day thanks to our generous sponsors. There are even
rumours of post-barcamp drinks covered by another sponsor....
