About UXcamp Amsterdam

UXcamp AMS is a one day, free to attend nonprofit event. Now in its third year, we bring together a community of UXers from Amsterdam and beyond for a day of knowledge sharing, learning, and discussion on User Experience and related disciplines. Whether your focus is on Information architecture, Interaction and visual design, Service design, Content strategy, User psychology or UX research, UXcamp AMS is an event you cannot afford to miss.

How it works

UXcamp is based on a BarCamp format where attendees set the agenda and create the content.

All guests are offered the chance to lead a presentation, discussion or workshop lasting up to 45 minutes (we suggest 35 mins for the session + 10 minutes for Q&A). Speakers will pitch their talk in the morning during the “Madness Session”. These pitches should be clear and to the point, lasting no more than 30 seconds. We can get pretty strict on that. Last year we even had a gong….so you’ve been warned!

The audience will vote on the sessions, allowing us to make a schedule for the day and assign locations for the sessions.

After the schedules are finalised, breakout sessions will commence. There will be two rounds of sessions before the lunch break scheduled for 13:00. After lunch, there will be a further three rounds of sessions. The day will end with a few closing words from the organisers and the opportunity to have a drink or two with your fellow attendees.

It’s all about you….

The key themes of UXcamp are involvement, inclusion, community and learning. Everyone is a participant and even if you are not presenting, your contribution to the sessions and assisting us with the organisation of the event is encouraged and greatly appreciated. 2016 was great fun and full of interesting sessions. Help us to make 2017 even better!
