What is BarCamp? BarCamp is an international network of user-generated conferences (or unconferences). They are open, participatory workshop-events, the content of which is provided by participants. Anybody can run a session or give talks, and attendees vote by their feet – ie: leave the room if the talk is of no interests to the attendee.
- Everyone are encouraged to submit talks, make it students, postgraduates , lecturers, and staffs.
- Any topic are accepted, including but not limited to :
- Talks about educational papers
- Talks about technologies
