We're looking for a sponsor for the morning coffee break. Want to make friends with an analytics crowd?


Analytics are a hot topic, and the evening events don't have enough time to dig in.

Analytics are divided by functional silos, but their work is starting to overlap.

Three main objectives:

Learn from each other

Meet people with similar interests

Especially people working in the other analytics silos

How does it work?

Free admission, low overhead

Local event intended to attract primarily local folks

Unconference format to create a participatory environment

Agenda designed to attract different categories of analytics pros

Career track for students and others interested in in analytics careers

How to prepare to attend an unconference


We're using the unconference format, in which the actual agenda will be determined on the morning of the event. We'll invite some experts to present, to ensure that we cover some major topics and to help people see the value in the day.

Major topic areas we expect to cover:

Web analytics

Social media analysis

Customer analytics (includes some of social media, web, email)

Text analytics

Business intelligence

Data mining / predictive analytics

Data visualization

How to start a career in analytics

We've started a list of session ideas for inspiration. If you plan to present a session at AnalyticsCamp, please add it to the proposals page. The final agenda will be determined in our opening session and posted to the sessions page.
