 What is BarCamp Canberra?
 ========================
 BarCamp Canberra (www.barcampcanberra.org) is a free one-day
volunteer-run
 'user-generated' conference operating on a not-for-profit basis.
 
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 communication, critical thinking,
makers,
 sustainability and the environment.
 
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.
 
 
Costs 
========================
 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....
