Informations about edaBarCamp

The series was started in 2016 by edacentrum, OFFIS and IMMS to enable regular interactive, open researcher meetings – for undergraduate and postgraduate students, professors, experts from both industry and public service and, indeed, for anybody with an interest in EDA (electronic design automation), microelectronics and system design. The edaBarCamp series has its origin in the interdisciplinary doctoral seminars of the ANCONA project.

  • Basic edaBarCamp principle: participants design their own participation

    Basic edaBarCamp principle: participants design their own participation

    In open sessions, each person has the chance to introduce his or her own issue and to enrich the other sessions with his or her thoughts and ideas. There is scope for each person to suggest subjects before and during the camp. There is no programme commitee. The event starts with a listing of the suggested issues so that common interests can be identified within the group. From this list, again as a group exercise, the agenda is set.

    In this way, every point on the agenda is sure to hit the spot because the early vote has shed light on the attenders’ degree of interest in the subjects. These are meetings where no one is allowed to be a ”meeting-ee“ but must be a ”meeting-er“: never only passive but a genuinely active member. According to the interest present, sessions can be organised in many ways: interactive workshops, presentations, tutorials, brainstorming, brief hackathons or open Q&A or feedback circles. Documentation is carried out as a shared task and exchanged with other groups, then made available after the event. The communications channels used by the edaBarCamp are the platforms and social media preferred by today’s young scientists.
