The “Un-conference” Concept

This participant-driven event allows for an organic process where attendees create the agenda and guide the sessions. Topics will be presented in lightening presentations delivered at the start of the unconference and will spark ideas for the subsequent sessions. The day will be structured around a series of topics related to the work at the iSchool: Big data and data science, Digital youth, Information assurance and cybersecurity
Knowledge organization, Libraries and librarianship, Social media, User experience and human computer interaction (UX/HCI), Women in technology.
