About the camp

We are kicking off UX Camp CPH 2015 on Friday the 24th at around 17.00. A fun and relaxed evening to get you in the UX Camp mood. Saturday is a full day UX Camp.

The wonderful surroundings of the IT-University of Copenhagen will once again host UX Camp CPH

UX Camp is built on the BarCamp concept. This is a user-generated conference form, that requires active participation from everyone at every level. Contribution is the keyword. There are many ways you can help ensure that we have a fantastic UX Camp. You could give a presentation, facilitate a workshop or a discussion – or you could just actively take part in the many interesting sessions and conversations on the conference.

There is one thing that makes an UX Camp special and that is the fact that the UX Camp is you! Without you there is no UX Camp.

Tickets

The tickets for this year’s camp are unfortunately sold out.

Programme

Just as last year we are inviting you for a fun and relaxed friday afternoon and evening, just to get it all started. Saturday, we’ll kick off early in classic UX Camp style – and end it with dinner and party. We are going to use Lanyrd.com as session schedule once we have all your sessions on the board.

How to do a session

If you’ve never attended a UX Camp (or a regular BarCamp for that matter) before, the concept might seem a bit confusing. But there’s no need to worry. To do a session you simply show up at UX Camp CPH and the first thing that happens is that everyone can present their session idea to the other participants – you will have no more than one minute for this.

We’ll then ask the crowd if they would be interested in your session (no need to worry, most times they are). After you’ve “sold” your session you will be given a slot of 45 minutes, which will be scheduled on the session board. You can then call yourself “an official speaker at a conference”. It’s that simple.

Step 1. We’ll call for speakers

Step 2. Fill in your session card

Step 3. Pitch your session to the crowd (2 mins. is only metaphorically speaking – make it short and precise

Step 4. Depending on the crowd’s interest in your session we’ll place your session in the appropriate size room
