It’s that time of year again and InfoCamp Seattle is just around the corner!

InfoCamp is an unconference for the information community. It features an egalitarian, community-driven format in which the agenda is created during the event — so anyone can sign up to lead a session!

*What:* InfoCamp Seattle 2011

*When:* Sat/Sunday, October 8 & 9

*Where:* Mary Gates Hall, University of Washington

This year we’ll be gathering at the University of Washington’s beautiful Seattle campus on October 8th and 9th. The Saturday opening festivities and keynote is in the Kane Hall auditorium. All other events, the sessions designed and led by you, our fearless InfoCampers, will happen in Mary Gates Hall (home of the UW’s Information School).

We will be recombining tried and true structures along with fresh new ideas to encourage engagement and collaboration. As always, it will be you, the participant, who drives the content of InfoCamp!

Sadly, I won’t be able to go (being in Australia), but any ASIS&T-folk who can get down there probably should. Last year we had a few people go and they had a good time. It’d be good for our visibility (as a group or as a school depending on which allegiance you feel more strongly) if we had some representation down there. Think about it. Maybe we’d be able to organize some sort of ride/accommodation sharing?
