What is an Unconference
At an unconference, no topics have been predetermined, no keynote speakers have been invited, no panels have been arranged. Instead, the event lives and dies by the participation of its attendees. Assisted by a facilitator, attendees decide what topics will be discussed and convene the individual breakout sessions. In other words, an unconference has no agenda until the participants create it. There are only two rules at an unconference:
Nobody is giving a presentation – unconferences are all about conversations;
If a session doesn’t inspire attendees and they are not contributing, they should get up and find a different one. (It’s called the Law of Two Feet.)
