Ad Hoc Birds of a feather Sessions
The program is packed with excellent looking presentations but there is also space for a limited number of ad hoc BoF sessions. There will be a way for you to organize a BoF at the conference.
Monday Evening Poster Sessions
It's not too late to submit a presentation! We still have space available for additional poster session presentations on Monday night. These spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. For more information as well as a list of posters scheduled so far, see the poster session page. Poster presentations are a great way to share your ideas with interested colleagues in a more intimate and interactive setting. Submit your idea today!
Wednesday Afternoon BarCamp
In addition to the half day seminars on Wednesday afternoon, we will offer our third JA-SIG BarCamp. A BarCamp is the kind of unstructured gathering defined by Wikipedia, which was so successful as the framework for the Rutgers Unconference. This is your opportunity to work together with other attendees and share information on any topic at all. There will be a white board throughout the conference to gather ideas. Learn more and see topic suggestions here.
Wednesday Afternoon uCamp
The uCamp is a "User Experience Camp". This one is developed by the Fluid folks as a way to introduce usability principles to multiple projects. A uCamp generally has an agenda, with a list of presentations, tutorials, and exercises for the participants. See the uCamp page to help us with planning the uCamp agenda, material, and activities.
Facilitating a session is easy. You basically introduce the speaker and keep track of the time. It is a great opportunity to volunteer at the conference, make more connections and see you favorite sessions. When the program has been set, we will post a link to a facilitator sign up page here
We will be compiling a list of things to do in St. Paul here. Check it out and add your favorite attraction if it is not listed.
