On Friday afternoon (13:30-16:00) there will be an unconference as part of the InterFace 2011 symposium.
For those who are not familiar with it, an unconference is a participant-driven meeting to discuss ideas, and is in a much less conventional format than a normal conference. Topics of interest are proposed by the participants during the days preceding the unconference, and then, on the day of the event, participants decide collaboratively which topics will be discussed.
We need your ideas for activities you’d like toÂ see included in the unconference session. TheseÂ could be:
things you’d like to learn about;
things you’d like toÂ discuss;
things you’d like to teach;
things you’d like to demo.
Please add any ideas for the unconference as comments to this blog post (feel free to post more than one and to add comments discussing others’ suggestions).
