This is our fifth un-conference and has moved to the London Hackspace this year. 

What is an unconference? An unconference is a conference where what happens is 
organised by the delegates on the day. The event organisers have to arrange 
something, the main one being a venue, but the rest is down to the delegates. So all 
the hassle of talk submissions, review and scheduling is taken away. 

Typically: 

at the start of the day everyone gets up in turn and says who they are, what their 
interests are and what they'd like to do 
based on this people write proposals on PostIt notes and stick these on a board 
a moderator may read out the proposals in turn to gauge interest, and if sufficient the 
proposal will be put on a scheduling board 
delegates may adjust the schedule to avoid clashes, etc. 
The unconference starts… 

Experience shows that the unconference format results in high quality sessions 
focussed on what delegates want. 

Everyone should be able to afford to come, and as it is a one-day event you will not 
need to incur accommodation costs, though several hotels are nearby for anyone who 
wishes to stay over.
