In celebration of Open Access Week, San Jose State University hosted a one-day conference October 25, 2013 on all things Open: Open Access, Open Resources, Open Education. This event was a dynamic combination of formal refereed conference and informal unconference.
Unconferencing provides "a participant-guided experience that actually brings the unstructured conversations people usually have between conference sessions into the conference itself. Unlike most conferences where a group of leaders determine what will be discussed, the participants make those decisions at an unconference” (American Library Association, 2012).
