About the Conference

Welcome to the 8th annual InfoCamp, the premier, student-run event for the information community!

InfoCamp is both a conference and something we call an “unconference.” Want to learn more? Check out our FAQ . Put simply, InfoCamp is a uniquely awesome and awesomely unique event. Why? Because aside from inviting industry leaders to come and speak to its attendees, we invite all attendees to pitch ideas to present at the conference. In other words, when you come, you will not just be an attendee, but you are invited to be active part of the learning and the information community at InfoCamp. Pretty rad, right?

This year’s InfoCamp theme is “Hello Disruption!,” where we will be looking at how information has enabled disruption, how disruption has become the new norm, and how disruption should be embraced rather than something to be feared. In line with “Hello Disruption!,” our panel themes will be:

  • Information vs Misinformation: As seen in this year’s election, information and misinformation are both powerful tools when wielded effectively. This panel will look at the effects of information when harnessed correctly and when abused.
  • Dynamo Disruptors: Who’s fighting the fight (and winning!) in industries hardest to disrupt? What have they learned along the way?

Got a cool idea? Consider applying to be an Unconference Speaker at the link above. Attendees will vote for who they want to hear, and then it’s go-time.

With only 150 seats, InfoCamp is intimate by design to allow for authentic community-building. Tickets have sold out in recent years. Purchase yours now!
