UXCamp DC is an ad-hoc unconference and is part of the larger BarCamp movement. The focus of this camp is user experience–online and offline. There is no set agenda until everyone gathers. Attendees are required to participate to some degree: either by leading a discussion, showing a demo, or by creating another type of collaborative session.
