Overview

What is InfoCamp

Launched in 2010, InfoCamp has become a premier event within the information community. Held every year by the students at UC Berkeley, School of Information, it draws over 150 professionals and students from different disciplines and interests such as engineering, UX design and research, data science, product management, and tech policy, and challenges participants to re-imagine information technology and bring solutions to real-world problems. This year the 2021 InfoCamp will feature an Idea-thon, a speaker series, and a Career Social Mixer. It will be held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Our Data / Our Selves"

Are our data ourselves?

Are our data from ourselves? or

Are our data representations of ourselves? 

With the development of AI and machine learning technologies, data can be applied and utilized in increasingly more settings and purposes, yet it also brings its share of controversies and crises. This year, we would like to draw attention to the ownership and distribution of data, focusing on conflicts of interest between businesses & individuals in data control and policy.

Registration

This event welcomes any undergraduate and graduate student interested in information and technology. You can register with a team or individually. If you do register individually, please note that we will place individual registrants into teams and you will be notified shortly before the event. You can also register if you want to listen in to our speaker sessions but do not wish to compete. Lastly, the networking mixer on the following Monday after the Ideathon competition (Oct. 18th) is optional. We are currently finalizing our ticket prices and registration details, and will update the information soon.
