GovCamp is an “unconference” event where people from government get together to share knowledge, network, and find opportunities to collaborate. It is targeted at implementers, such as developers, user experience experts, social media and communications people, technical and project managers, open data people and any other aspects of technology use and innovation in government.
Campers can expect the following:
+ Active participation in discussions throughout the day.
+ Opportunities to volunteer for talk slots in different rooms.
+ Address by invited guests to all campers at the beginning and end of the workshop.
+ Three themed rooms running all day around citizen-centric services, open data and public engagement. Campers are encouraged to share case studies and experiences, discuss technologies that may contribute, such as social media, Web 2.0, augmented reality, geospatial and data visualisation tools as well as use the opportunity to connect with their peers throughout government for support and collaboration.
To nominate the areas you would be interested in discussing on the day, please visit the GovCamp 2011 Wiki.
NOTE: This event is strictly limited to 100 places.
This event is supported by the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO).
