The

New Normal

InfoCamp | OCT 17-18, 2020

Overview

What is InfoCamp

UC Berkeley School of Information’s InfoCamp is a premier student-run event that aims to re-imagine information technology. In its 11th year, inspired by living through a unique time in history, InfoCamp will feature an idea-thon, along with a speaker series.  We will examine opportunities and risks in the new normal, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Ideathon

An ideathon is where participants brainstorm solutions to real-world issues. In this two-day event, you and your team will tackle challenges related to virtual learning – specific challenge details will be provided during the event by Atlassian. Each team can choose to compete in either track:

  • Engineering / Data Science: build a coded proof-of-concept or a data model
  • Product Design: create an interactive design prototype

The top two teams for each track will walk home with:

  • Winner: $400 per team and swag bags
  • Runner-up: $200 per team and swag bags

Registration

This event is FREE and open to anyone interested in information and technology. You can register with a team (3-4 people) or individually. We will place individual registrants into teams and you will be notified shortly before the event. You can also register if you’re interested in tuning in to our speaker sessions but do not wish to compete.

Come learn, network, and be inspired!
