The first day of the symposium is a free-to-attend, hands-on unconference (, self-organized on the spot by whoever shows up. (Trust us, this works.)

In past years we’ve had workshops, panels, talks that didn’t make it into day 2, debates, radio shows, and many unstructured conversations. The unconference is what you make it.

Unconference participants will collectively fill the schedule grid first thing Saturday morning. We'll provide rooms with projectors, whiteboards, and markers. Smaller informal discussions can occur in the common areas.
